What is the Award ? a Self Development Programme for youths The International Award is an exciting self-development programme available to all 14 to 25 year olds. Over 8 million young people worldwide have taken up the Award challenge in 140 countries worldwide. Young people who do the Award: Discover what they are made of Make an impact on their community Develop a set of life skills. Most of all, they have fun! The three Level, four Section format of the Award Programme makes it very versatile. It can be adapted so that it's relevant to any young person, anywhere in the world. Three Levels The Programme is based around three Levels, each successive one requiring a greater degree of commitment. BRONZE is for those over 14. The minimum period of participation to gain this Award is 6 months SILVER is for those over 15. The minimum period of participation to gain this Award is 12 months GOLD is for those over 16. The minimum period of participation to gain this Award is 18 months It is possible to start at any Level – some participants work their way through all three, while others start at Silver or Gold. Four Sections To gain an Award, participants must complete activities in four Sections for a specified minimum period of time. There is an additional requirement of a Residential Project at Gold Level. Participants decide what they would like to do for each Section 1. Service Participants engage with their community and discover the impact they can have through: Community service projects, Conservation work, Voluntary service in hospitals or community homes, More specialised training such as lifesaving, first aid or rescue services. 2. Skills The Skills Section is about developing personal interests and learning practical skills. There are almost limitless possibilities to choose from. There is no set standard that participants must reach: they set their own goals and measure their progress against them. 3. Physical Recreation By undertaking some form of organised and regular physical activity, participants show perseverance and improve their fitness. Their goal is to record their individual progress. 4. Adventurous Journey The Adventurous Journey is about adventure and discovery. Participants develop an understanding of the environment, and the importance of working together in a team with a common purpose. It can be on foot, by bicycle, boat or on horseback. Training, preparation, self sufficiency and self- reliance are the key elements. Residential Project This is only a requirement at Gold Level. It aims to broaden experience through living and working with others (who are not everyday companions). The project takes place over a period of five consecutive days. It requires resilience, adaptability and consideration for others.
