competitive, internationally recognized program designed to encourage young people to develop positive skills and lifestyle habits.
The Award is about personal challenge and development and is adaptable according to each participant’s interests and abilities.
The strength of the Award is our ability to readily partner with other youth organizations through leader development and resource sharing.
The Award concept is one of individual challenge. It presents young people a balanced, non-competitive program of voluntary activities which encourages personal discovery and growth, self-reliance, perseverance, responsibility to themselves and service to their community.
The unique flexibility of the Award makes it ideally suited to easy adaptation and integration into different cultures and societies. The basic principles of the Award remain the same but the activities and delivery continue to evolve and adapt to suit the changing demands of modern society and the varying needs of young people. The Award is now an international program recognized and used by organizations working with young people throughout the world.
