May 27th, 2021

From L to R: Diarmaid Marsden (Ulster GAA), Kate Thompson (Duke of Edinburgh), Ulster GAA President Oliver Galligan, Avril Ryan (Gaisce – The President’s Award), Sharon Haughey-Grimley (Ulster GAA)

Calling all young Gaels aged 14-24!

Would you like to have fun, make friends, improve your self-esteem and build confidence? Gain essential skills and attributes for work and life such as resilience, problem-solving, team-working, communication and drive; enhancing CVs, university and job applications? Then please sign up for the Joint Award Initiative today!

The Joint Award Initiative is the world’s leading youth achievement award which gives 14-24 year olds the opportunity to be the best they can be. There are three progressive levels – Bronze, Silver or Gold Award.  Participants can choose their final award from Gaisce – the President’s Award, the Duke of Edinburgh Award or the Duke of Edinburgh International Award.

This exciting initiative offers young people an opportunity to develop a skill, undertake physical activity, enjoy a volunteering experience and take part in an exciting expedition with their peers.  Currently Ulster GAA has a number of young people progressing to their award and the opportunity is now open to any young GAA person across Ulster.

We particularly encourage clubs to sign up for this prestigious Award so that their young volunteers and players can get this impressive recognition for their efforts, and the clubs will see the benefits too.

Anyone interested in more information on this programme should contact ashelene.groogan.ulster@gaa.ie by email for a full information pack with details on how to register.
