Young people and events

Education & Parents


One of CnaG's main focuses is the support and development of young people who speak Gaelic, are learning or would like to. We organise and deliver various youth events throughout the year including certificated programmes such as the John Muir Award and Duke of Edinburgh Award. These programmes include a residential element and we also hold open residential events throughout the year. Have a look at the events on the right hand side of this page.
