Two young people receiving their Gaisce Awards with CEO Yvonne McKenna

“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.
