Personal Skill – Physical Recreation – Community Involvement – Adventure Journey

Getting Started

Step 1 Find a President’s Award Leader (PAL)

PALs are there to support you throughout your Gaisce journey and are required to take part in Gaisce.

There may be a PAL in your locality in your school, college, youth group, or community-based organisation.

If you are having trouble finding a PAL, contact us at and we’ll help you get started.

Step 2 – Choose Your Challenge Activities

Identify which activities you’d like to do under the Personal Skill, Physical Recreation and Community Involvement challenge areas.

Discuss these with your PAL to ensure they are appropriate and sufficiently challenging.

You can choose activities that you are already engaged in or you can start something completely new.
