The President’s Award is a selfdevelopment programme for young people which enhances confidence and wellbeing through participation in personal, physical and community challenges. Gaisce is a direct challenge from the President of Ireland to young people aged 15-25
to dream big and realise their potential.
Gaisce is non-competitive, participants are encouraged to choose their own activities and goals
with the support of a trained, adult President’s Award Leader (or PAL).
The Gaisce programme is delivered by over 1,500 PALs working
and volunteering in a variety of organisations across Ireland.
There are three levels of Gaisce – Bronze, Silver and Gold.
The more time and energy participants give, the greater their reward.
