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 President’s Award Leader (PAL) in your locality in your school,
college, youth group, or community-based organisation.

If you are having trouble finding a PAL, you can “Request to Find a PAL
and send the filled-out form to your local Gaisce Development Officer (DO).

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.

Step 3 – Get Registered
