Fighting Words is a Gaisce Challenge Partner - Work Toward Your Award With Us!
Gaisce – The President’s Award is a self-development programme that encourages young people to find their passion, get active and make a difference in their communities. Gaisce is a direct challenge from the President of Ireland to young people aged 15-25 to dream big and realise their potential.
Over 500 secondary schools in Ireland participate in Gaisce, so chances are your child's school already has a PAL (President's Award Leader) who can provide more information and who will act as your child's mentor as s/he works toward their Gaisce Award. Many young people work toward the Bronze Award in Transition Year. Attending Write Club regularly is great way to work toward the Personal Skill Challenge Area.
Please contact the PAL (President's Award Leader) in your child's school for more information about the Gaisce programme and how to get involved. Don't have a PAL? Contact us for more information.
