Gaisce Challenge Partner

Teen-Turn activities allow Gaisce participants to meet either their Personal Skill or Community Involvement section of their Gaisce Award. We also have two President’s Award Leaders (PAL) on staff to facilitate your Gaisce journey.


About Gaisce

Gaisce – The President’s Award is a self-development programme that encourages you to
get active, find your passion, be part of a team and make a difference in your community
while having fun and making new friends! It is a direct challenge from the President of
Ireland, Michael D. Higgins to all young people to dream big and realise your potential.

You can rise to the Gaisce challenge by identifying which award level you want to aim for (Bronze, Silver and Gold ) and then achieving your goals across the following challenge areas:

Community Involvement – volunteer to help a charity, cause or community group.
Personal Skill – develop a skill you have or try something new.
Physical Recreation – become more active with a sport or exercise.
Adventure Journey – take to the great outdoors on a team challenge.

Residential (for Gold participants only) – meet different people and discover a new
experience away from home.

You choose the activities for each challenge area and set your own goals, with support from your President’s Award Leader (PAL).

Remember, Gaisce is not a competition, just an opportunity to push yourself to achieve your goals. The more time and energy you give, the greater the reward!
