The Challenge
To organise and plan an
innovative fundraiser and educate your school about Don Bosco Care.

The TY Challenge is designed to give TY students an opportunity to learn about children and young adults living in the care system, to practice their entrepreneurial skills and give back to those less fortunate. We challenge each TY team to educate their school about the work of Don Bosco Care and raise money for the young people we work with in as creative and innovative way as possible.

In partnership with Gaisce work containing a minimum of 13 weeks at 1 hour of work per student qualify for inclusion in the Community Involvement Challenge.

Choose an innovative way to reach your goal of increasing awareness of Don Bosco Care while raising much needed funds to aid their work. 


Please feel free to be inventive. You can have one main event or a number of small events to achieve your goal. Some suggestions: Sponsored swim ¦ Colour Run ¦ Fashion Show ¦ Disco ¦ Bake Off ¦ School Musical ¦

We are looking for innovative awareness raising ideas, the best event, best use of social media/digital marketing and best teamwork. 

Be as inventive as you like. The more tools you use the better. Use social media to promote your event. A video diary of the whole process could be an option. When picking your team choose carefully. Students with an eye for art and design would be a great asset when preparing posters etc while those interested in business might be good at looking after the financial side of the project.

Once you register you will have access to a host of tools, tips and resources through Google Classroom to make your TY Challenge awesome.
