The Award Programme is a great way to develop new skills and broaden your career prospects, whilst having fun. The Award can also count towards high school leaving certificates, as well as points for admission to tertiary institutions.

Many Award holders report having received discounts when applying at university. However, this depends on the tertiary institution and particular faculties. On achieving an Award, you should have developed many skills, behaviours and attitudes that are valued by employers globally.

The Award is all about going the extra mile – gaining new skills, pushing yourself physically, helping others and exploring new territories. At the same time, you’ll build friendships, experiences and memories that will last a lifetime. It doesn’t matter who you are or where you are from, as long as you’re 14 to 24, you can choose the activities that motivate you and go on your personal journey. Pushing yourself to do new things will help you develop confidence and useful skills.

Meeting new people will inspire you and lead to lasting friendships. It is impossible to list all the benefits here, but based on the feedback from participants, doing the Award is “life-changing”, and will make you stand out from the crowd. It will set you on a path of a meaningful life and prosperous future!
