Working as tutors

At Dóchas don Óige, we really have the opportunity to get to know the trainees we work with. When a trainee starts we assure them that this is a chance for them to make a fresh start with regard to their learning. We understand that each trainee is different, and therefore, needs to be treated as an individual in how they learn. We do our best as tutors at Dóchas don Óige to use a different approach to learning and through years of experience we have developed effective methods that work for our learners. Dóchas don Óige offers so much more than a place of learning for the young people who attend the centre, and as tutors we like to think that we can offer more also in terms of learning and the personal development of the young person.

Firstly, a big thank you to everyone who donated to our Free Youth Counselling Service during the Christmas break from as far away as the US. We are so grateful for your kindness 🎁And a second thank you to the Galway Children and Young Peoples Services Committee for additional funding for Counselling in Athenry, Gort and Connemara. This will make a big difference 🙏And the result....we are delighted to extend Free Youth Counselling to new areas of Galway and to more young people 📣Due to Covid-19 our experienced, qualified psychotherapists are seeing young people online until we can safely return to face to face sessions. If you would like to book please contact Aisling on 📱 086 024 7763 or 📧 aisling.dermody@youthworkgalway.ie and remember you don't need a clinical (GP) referral. The service is open to young people in Galway City and County aged between 12 and 21 years.

Tap into the many free online work outs available at the moment, or even get outside if possible for a quick walk! A little activity can go a long way! #fivewaysfortoughtimes ... See MoreSee Less
