The No Name! Club is delighted to say that we have formalised our relationship with Gaisce – The President’s Award and we are now an official Gaisce Challenge Partner.
In effect this means that we support and involve young people to participate in one or more Gaisce Challenge Areas, allowing relevant activities to be counted towards achieving a Gaisce Award.
The President’s Award is a self – development programme for young people which enhances confidence and wellbeing through participation in personal, physical and community challenges. Gaisce is a direct challenge from the President of Ireland to young people aged 15-25 to dream big and realise their potential. Gaisce is non-competitive, participants are encouraged to choose their own activities and goals with support of an adult Presidents Award leader (Most likely a teacher in their school).
For many years Hosts and Hostesses have used club involvement towards achieving Challenge Areas, for example attending club can be put towards “Community Involvement”. This partnership just formalises this and hopefully will assist any Host or Hostess on their journey to achieve the President’s Award.
