Gaisce – The President’s Award is a self-development programme that encourages you to find your passion, get active and make a difference in your community! Gaisce is a direct challenge from the President of Ireland to young people aged 15-25 to dream big and realise their potential.
There are challenges in four main areas, community involvement, developing a new skill, physical recreation and an adventure journey.
There were a number of winners from the Mosney DP centre in 2017 and 2018. How about having an awards ceremony in Lissywollen next year? Read more about how you can apply here.
