The Irish Examiner wants to hear from young people across Ireland on how the COVID-19 pandemic has impacted your plans for the future. Young people’s lives have been turned upside down during this crisis, with schools and colleges closing, many young people losing jobs, and future plans being put on hold.
As part of a project with the Irish Examiner, we want to highlight these stories and give a voice to young people in Ireland who are dealing with an uncertain future.
Has COVID-19 impacted your future plans for school or college? How do you think it will impact finding or keeping a job in the future? Has it had an impact on your future career plans? Do you think it will impact your plans for the near or distant future? Do you think it will impact your relationships with your friends or family? If so, we want to hear from you.
Share your story
We’re looking for anyone aged 18-30 to share how the pandemic has impacted your plans for the future. A collection of these stories will then be published in the Irish Examiner along with dozens of other young people’s stories, to highlight the impact of the pandemic.
To get involved, complete the below form and share your story with us. It only needs to be one or two paragraphs (roughly 100-250) words. We’ll let you know when the full piece will be published in the Irish Examiner.
