Ulster GAA - Young Leader Programme 2018

Young Leaders Programme

Ulster GAA is delighted to announce it’s new Young Leaders Programme targeting outstanding young GAA volunteers from across Ulster’s nine counties. This exciting and innovative programme will be the first of its kind in Ulster and has been made possible with the support of the Coca-Cola Thank You Fund.

The Programme will be delivered through a Leadership Academy targeting young people aged 16-24 and will run across 4 days – 23rd, 24th, 30th & 31st July 2018 in Tyrone GAA Garvaghey Centre. It will include a 25-hour Club Placement at their local club with the placement being overseen by a club mentor who will help the young people put the knowledge learned into practice.

All skills learned will assist with the personal development of the young person, providing them with strong transferable skills and knowledge, which will not only help them in a GAA setting, but also in their quest for further education or employment.

Key Programme modules for the four days are shown to the right of the page.

Ulster GAA believe this programme will be one of a kind for GAA volunteers in Ulster , initially targeting three 16-24 year olds from each county in Ulster.
