Junior Achievement Ireland’s mission is ‘to inspire and motivate young people to realise their potential by valuing education and understanding how to succeed in the world of work’. The Cliffs of Moher are proud to be part of this program. Junior Achievement Ireland (JAI) is a member of one of the world’s largest educational non-profits, preparing young people for employment and entrepreneurship, delivering hands on, experiential learning in work readiness, financial literacy, entrepreneurship, and the value of STEM.

Cliffs of Moher Visitor Experience teams are engaged with JAI in 2020/2021 in the JA Inspires program. Eight Teams of two will virtually present to 8 different schools.

Primary: Liscannor NS, Lahinch NS, Scoil Mhainchín, Ennistymon, Clouna NS and Annagh NS. Secondary: Ennistymon Vocational School and St. Flannan’s College, Ennis.

Cliffs of Moher volunteers have an important story to tell students. Through this once-off 40–60-minute workshop, students will learn from the team about their career and educational paths. They will inspire students to see themselves in similar careers and to realise that many of the skills they acquire at school are transferrable to the workplace. This will kick off in April 2021.

An art competition was held in 2018 whereby children from all over Clare submitted their images of the Cliffs of Moher.

Doolin & Shannon National Schools were the winner of this Art Competition, the prize was a visit and guided tour of the Cliffs of Moher.

In December 2020, The Cliffs of Moher Visitor Experience brought two schools and two nursing homes together to bring some seasonal joy to the individuals living at the nursing homes.

Recognising the increased restrictions in nursing homes and the impact on the senior’s well-being the Cliffs of Moher Visitor Experience began work with two local national schools; Liscannor NS and Mol an Óige Steiner National School in Ennistymon. The students from these schools were asked to write letters, make recordings of Christmas carols and paint pictures of local landmarks.

The Cliffs of Moher Visitor Experience requested that the letters, recordings, and paintings be sent to the Visitor Attraction so they can pair a gift for each resident this Christmas.

Shannon Heritage gift shop and Brambles’s cafe both agreed to be part of this Christmas initiative and sponsored gifts and food.
The staff at each of the nursing home were also treated to a variety of home-cooked goodies as a thank you for all the hard work on the frontline.

As a thank you for their participation the school with the best contribution will be treated to a day out at the Cliffs of Moher Visitor Experience including lunch once lockdown and restrictions are lifted. A special prize will be awarded to the student with most outstanding effort.

Due to the enjoyment by everyone involved this will be an annual event.

Open days were run in December 2019 and 2020. 2020 saw more than double the admission rate from the previous year. Locals were given free admission and opportunity to take a guided tour of the site. The purpose of this was to give back to the community so that they can promote the Visitor Experience to their friends and family but also learn more about the Cliffs of Moher during a quieter time of year which can allow for unique and personal experiences with Cliffs of Moher staff.
