The High Voltage Project is a garda youth diversion project. It was established in 2002. It targets young people aged 11-18 years who are either involved in crime or at risk of becoming involved. Up to 40 young people participate each year. The High Voltage Project acts in a preventative way. It also seeks to involve young people positively in their communities.
