Staff at the centre will be available on August 15th and the following days from 10am-6pm daily for young people and parents to bring along any queries that may arise following students receiving their results.
The Youth Information Centre, which is managed by the Donegal Youth Service, will be able to give young people details on how to calculate points, how to go about having papers re-checked, how to go about accepting an offer from your college, or how to access other training courses.
Youth Information Officer, Martin Keeney, says the important thing is to take time to decide what you want to do.
“If you don’t get the results you want it is not the end of the world. You could repeat, take on a Post Leaving Certificate course, access other courses or find a career path through a state training agency. We have information available on all these options so feel free to come in and have a talk to one of the staff or phone us in the centre.”
A 65-page booklet produced by the Roscommon Youth Information Centre, entitled “Flying the Coop”, is also currently available through the Youth Information Centre, which is full of advice on areas including tenants rights, health, finances and useful contacts and advice for those going on to study in the Republic of Ireland., Northern Ireland or the UK.
The Youth Information Centre will also be holding a Flying the Coop workshop on August 23rd in Letterkenny YIC at 7pm for young people and parents of those who will be leaving home for the first time, with advice on managing finances, tenants rights, how to make the most of college and how to stay safe.
The phone number to call for the Leaving Cert results helpline is 07491-29640. The Youth Information Centre is located at 16-18 Port Road or you can even email your query to email@example.com.
