“My favourite thing about doing Gaisce is the wide range of things you get to do, and trying new things you never would have thought of.”

Cian Brennan – Gaisce Silver Awardee

The role of the PAL

  • PALs take on the responsibility of delivering the Gaisce programme, supporting the personal development of young people all over Ireland.
  • PALs should be working or affiliated with a youth centred organisation/ post-primary school.
  • Being a PAL can be hugely beneficial and rewarding, both personally and professionally.
  • The support and encouragement of each dedicated PAL is vital to ensuring young people have the opportunity to achieve a Gaisce Award.
  • PALs also have the responsibility to ensure young people have a high quality and enjoyable Gaisce experience that meets the Gaisce Award standards.
  • PALs uphold the values and integrity of the Gaisce programme.
  • Without PALs’ commitment and motivation of young people to begin, and more importantly complete, their Gaisce Award, there would be no awardees – and no Gaisce!
  • It is also wonderful when PALs encourage and inspire young people to continue their Gaisce journey from Bronze, to Silver and all the way to Gold.
