Bronze is the first level of the Award, and you can start it in the school year that you turn 14. Bronze takes a minimum of 6 months to complete.

There are three specific sections—Service, Skills and Physical Recreation—that you'll choose your activities from, plus an Adventurous Journey to complete.

The table below gives you a good idea of what time is involved for each section, but bear in mind that if you're already playing a sport, learning a skill (e.g. learning to drive or play a musical instrument), or helping others in your community, that time may count towards your required hours:
