A recognised national network of adventure centres who actively support Gaisce Award participants in meeting their Adventure Journey requirements

What is an Approved Adventure Journey Provider?

A recognised national network of centres to build on excellence in the sector by highlighting and signposting Approved Adventure Journey Providers more clearly to Gaisce Award Partners, President’s Award Leaders and Gaisce participants. It aims to ensure consistency, quality, and safety across Adventure Journey experiences for all. It will also create strong connection and supports between the Approved Adventure Journey Providers and the Gaisce Development Officer team to ensure accessibility of the Adventure Journey for different types of groups.
