Gaisce – The President’s Award is a self-development programme for young people between the ages of 15-25, which is proven* to enhance confidence and wellbeing through participation in personal, physical, community and team challenges. It is a direct challenge from the President of Ireland, Michael D. Higgins, to all young people to dream big and realise their potential. Gaisce is the most prestigious youth award in Ireland. Since its inception in 1985, over 377,000 young people have participated in the Gaisce programme. Today, more than 24,000 young people register for the Gaisce challenge each year, pursuing the award through more than 850 organisations (Gaisce Award Partners) located right across the country. Gaisce supports these organisations and the more than 1,200 President Award Leaders (PALs) working and volunteering in them to mentor young people through their Gaisce journey. Gaisce celebrates the individuality of each participant and ensures that, while there are many pathways to achieving a Gaisce Award, each Gaisce journey is as unique and expansive as the individual young person determines, and all Awards are equally recognised.
