Get Involved with Gaisce

You can help young people unlock their potential and build a brighter future by supporting Gaisce – the President’s Award.

Gaisce – The President’s Award is indebted to all Gaisce operating bodies, PALs and sponsors for their generous and ongoing support of our work in helping young people to dream big and fulfil their potential. To read more about how the President’s Award has changed the lives of our young people see our awardee stories on the Awards page


Become a PAL

Gaisce – The President’s Award would truly not exist without the dedication of more than 1,500 President Award Leaders.

Every young person that chooses to take the Gaisce Award is supported by an adult mentor, a trained President Award Leader (PAL). PALs work & volunteer in a variety of organisations that support and empower young people. Learn more about becoming a PAL here
