Bronze and Silver Gaisce awards have been presented to seven residents of the Oberstown children's detention campus.
The seven recipients successfully completed their Gaisce challenges over the past 12 months in each of the four categories of community involvement, personal skill, physical recreation and adventure journey.
They earned valuable and practical life skills which they will carry with them when they leave Oberstown.
The campus held a special awards ceremony this week to present the young people with the awards.
Director of Oberstown Pat Bergin said the awards were a testament to each of the seven young people who received them.
"The awards illustrate how despite often coming from difficult backgrounds young people can achieve so much when they are provided with a safe and secure environment and the supports to flourish," he said.
"The aim of Gaisce is to support young people in fulfilling their potential and that reflects our commitment at Oberstown to help young people to return to their communities and make a positive contribution."
