How is an Award Achieved

To earn an Award, each young person must learn a skill, improve their physical well-being, volunteer in their community and experience a team adventure in a new environment. All Participants are supported by a network of adult Award Leaders, Assessors, and Supervisors.

The key elements of our program are:

  • Three levels: Bronze, Silver, and Gold – each progressively more challenging.
  • Four Sections: Physical Recreation, Skills, Voluntary Service, Adventurous Journey plus Gold Residential Project (Gold Level only).
  • Achieving an Award recognises individual goal setting and self-improvement through persistence and achievement.

Time Requirements:

  • Bronze – minimum 6 months
  • Silver – minimum 6 months if completed Bronze otherwise 12 months for direct entrants
  • Gold – minimum 12 months if completed Silver otherwise 18 months for direct entrants
