More About The Organisation

Organisation Details

About Us

The Award is a challenging programme of activities for 14 - 25 year olds which will help young people to learn new skills, help others and experience adventure and it will also provide a great sense of achievement. Many organisations such as employers and universities take a good view of the Award and what it says about the person who has achieved it.

There are 3 levels - Bronze, Silver and Gold and for each, you complete activities in 4 sections - Service, Skills, Physical Recreation and Expeditions. At Gold level you also take part in a Residential Project.

It is up to you to choose what you do. In each section there is a wide range of options or you could find other similar activities which interest you. This could be something entirely new or could continue an activity you already enjoy. It is not an exam and you can't fail. The Award is about having a go and having fun.
