The mission of The President's Award is " to provide opportunities for young people to realise their potential through personal challenges, facilitating the transition from young person to young adult and enhancing thier potential and contribution as active participants in society."
A key part of the Gaisce Award is the Adventure Journey or Adventure Expedition and Kilfinane Outdoor Education and Training Centre have been helping PAL's to facilitate this aspect of the award for many years.
We offer Gaisce programmes for the Bronze and Silver Awards. At bronze level we provide either a 3 day/ 2 night programme ( to include a day of student preparation and expedition planning) or a 2 day/ 1 night programme where PAL's have the skills to help students with pre-planning their expedition.
