Youth Work Ireland Galway (Corrach Buí)

Who We Are

Our aims are to support young people and meet their needs. We work to promote the educational, personal and social development of each young person we engage with. We work with various partners within the community, and have established links with other agencies in the prevention of early school leaving. These links include student volunteers from NUIG, GMIT Culinary Department, Westside Resource Centre, Westside Library, Rahoon Family Centre, local primary and secondary schools, and the Community Garda Liason team. We provide a range of enjoyable activities and programmes for young people such as outdoor activities, homework supports, summer camps, arts and crafts, cookery classes, youth drop in space, driver theory test support, Westside Arts Festival, involvement in local activities, and we are always open to new ideas.

Choosing A Strong Password

Chains of words, make passwords easy to remember and harder to crack.

 

To create a password that meets our strength requirements, it’s recommended to use a mix of at least three random words along with a number (not a birthday or 123 etc., just random) and one or more symbols and capitals, but don't capitalize the first letters of the words, e.g.:

  • mower-speaK5shadow
  • table?taPe748goNe.

This password style might not be very common, and it will be much more difficult for computers/bots to crack. It also allows for your passwords to be memorized more easily. Though a password vault may help with that.
