Award Leaders in action
What is an Award Leader?
As an Award Leader, you will be the key point of contact, and support, for young people taking part in the Award. The Award team will support you with training, access to resources and support materials, and any questions you have along the way.
Join us in creating opportunity for any young person to achieve their Award. Help them take the reins, step out of their comfort zones, go somewhere they never imagined, learn something they never thought they could do, and turn potential into accomplishment.
