Youth Work Ireland Galway are also providing support to young people who are doing the Leaving Cert, as this is a very difficult and stressful time for them. Young people can participate in a peer group with Youth Workers to talk about the Leaving Cert. This is a weekly space where young people can discuss their concerns about the Leaving Cert and what lays ahead for them post Leaving Cert or just to talk to other students and have a social space to connect. Let's Chat Leaving Cert also uploads #TuesdayTips on Youth Information Co. Galway Facebook and Instagram pages, based on #WednesdayAsks.
