There are a growing number of opportunities for young people to use Gaelic outwith the classroom in youth clubs (Sradagan), music and drama (Feisean) and through other initiatives organised by Comunn na Gàidhlig e.g. John Muir Trust, football competitions, residentials. Pupils’ Gaelic language skills, especially social language, are enhanced and they are more likely to use Gaelic beyond school if they participate in these community activities.
Comunn na Gàidhlig (CnaG)
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.
