Congratulations to No Name Club who were awarded their Silver Health Quality Mark Award at their Annual Conference hosted in Athlone Institute of Technology.
No Name! Club is a National Voluntary Youth Organisation founded in 1978 with clubs throughout the country.
NYCI has developed the Health Quality Mark (HQ Mark) as a health promotion initiative with a view to enhancing best practice and a high standard of quality in all aspects of health promotion in youth organisations.
The HQ Mark is a set of quality standards in youth health promotion and takes the form of an award conferred on organisations that satisfy agreed quality criteria. The criteria, twelve in total, have been drawn up by the NYCI and are based on best practice in health promotion at a regional and national level as outlined in various strategy documents.
Congratulations to Rush Youthreach Education Centre who successfully maintained and has been awarded their Gold Status as a Healthy Quality Mark Organisation on Thursday November 10th, the same day they celebrated their 25th birthday.
