Gaisce – The President’s Award is Ireland’s very own National Challenge Award – the country’s most prestigious and respected individual award programme for young people (15-25 years). The Award Scheme works on the basis of a personal challenge set by the young person and monitored by a President’s Award Leader (PAL). There are three different levels of Award – Bronze, Silver and Gold, in the challenge areas.
The Gaisce Award Scheme is promoted in Centres of Education and the Youth Work Sector by trained staff from the Cork City Learning Support Services.
