There are personal benefits to setting goals and achieving them. Your mental health, confidence and self esteem will be boosted by participating in the internationally recognised programme. Your wider community benefits, your friends and family too! Summer 2020 can be the summer you earned Michael D Higgin's medal and Certificate for your CV.
NUI Galway has three committed PALs and three support PALs! You can even volunteer to undertake the training to be a PAL and lead your fellow students to achieve their goals! Check out stories from Gaisce Medal participants and PALs.
