Tutors Needed for Dermot Earley Youth Leadership Initiative

Page Content

After two very successful Dermot Earley Youth Leadership Programmes in our club, we are looking for facilitators to lead this programme for another year. 

Both the facilitators and youth adults have really enjoyed being part of the programme over the last few years. 

The Dermot Earley Youth Leadership Initiative (DEYLI) takes its name from one of Ireland’s most inspirational leaders and one of Gaelic games most iconic proponents, Dermot Earley (1948- 2010). The initiative, a tribute to Dermot’s lifetime of sporting and professional achievements and his commitment to community service, is brought to life through a partnership between GAA, Foróige, and NUI Galway. The programme empowers young people to enhance their leadership capabilities to better enable them to reach their full potential and have a positive impact on the world around them.


About the Initiative
DEYLI has seen over 600 young GAA members (aged 15-18) complete the yearlong programme, gaining from NUIG a FETAC level 6 third level qualification in Youth Leadership and Community Action for their efforts. This unique programme evokes and honours the values that Dermot Earley epitomised and is designed to foster them in a new generation of young Irish leaders. The programme comprises three modules, two of which are facilitated, and one is undertaken by the young people independently.

Who might be suitable?
We have had players, teachers, healthcare workers, those in business, those who have retired leading the course over the last few years. If you think you may be interested please email.

Full Training and ongoing support will be given.
