Please find details below on the Dermot Early Initiative which is now open with Fifteen (15) participant places up for grabs and application is NOW OPEN to young GAA club members, male and female aged 15-18 years-old.

Following on from its successful pilot in 2015-16, the GAA, Foróige, and NUIG are delighted to announce that the innovative Dermot Earley Youth Leadership Initiative is coming to county Donegal as part of Phase 2.
 
Fully supported by the family of the late great Dermot Earley Snr, the initiative is designed to support the next generation of young GAA leaders in achieving their full potential and in doing so to make their mark in their clubs, their counties, and indeed their country.
15 participant places are up for grabs and the application process is NOW OPEN to young GAA club members, male and female aged 15-18 years-old.
 
Closing date for receipt of applications is midnight Sunday the 16 th of October.
 
The initiative runs over three modules between November 2016 and May 2017 and involves 30 hours of workshops designed to develop the leadership skills that Dermot epitomised on and off the field. 30 hours of self-directed learning is also required before the participants put their enhanced leadership skills into action through a club or community-based action project.
 
Those who complete all three modules will graduate from NUIG with a Foundation Certificate in Youth Leadership and Community Action. The workshops will take place in Foroige Deck youth project Donegal Town on 1st of November to 4th (midterm break).
