For the past number of years we have being participating in Gaisce - The President's Award is Ireland's National Challenge Award for young people, the country's most prestigious and respected individual Award programme. It is a challenge from the President of Ireland to the young people of Ireland.
Gaisce works on the basis of a personal challenge set by the young person. You will set your own challenge and agree it with a President's Award Leader (PAL). You won't be competing with other participants, as each challenge is completely individual… so the only person you will compete with is yourself. http://www.gaisce.ie/
We have been lucky enough to have a number of Transition Year (TY) students volunteer with our club each year and mentored by 2 of our PALs. We welcome interest from students in Aug of their TY year in order to book their place as we get a lot of enquires. We take 3 students each year and their Gaisce programme is mapped out by their PALs
Our current mentors joined our club as Gaisce students and haven't left yet! We are delighted to have them on board.
