About the Awards

The International Award Programme is based around three Levels, each successive one requiring a greater degree of commitment.

BRONZE is for those over 14. The minimum period of participation to gain this Award is 6 months

SILVER is for those over 15. The minimum period of participation to gain this Award is 12 months

GOLD is for those over 16. The minimum period of participation to gain this Award is 18 months

It is possible to start at any Level some participants work their way through all three, while others start at Silver or Gold.

To gain an Award, participants must complete activities in four Sections for a specified minimum period of time. There is an additional requirement of a Residential Project at Gold Level. Participants decide what they would like to do for each Section.


Participants engage with their community and discover the impact they can have through: Community service projects, Conservation work , Voluntary service in hospitals or community homes, More specialised training such as lifesaving, first aid or rescue services.

Adventurous Journey

The Adventurous Journey is about adventure and discovery. Participants develop an understanding of the environment, and the importance of working together in a team with a common purpose. It can be on foot, by bicycle, boat or on horseback. Training, preparation, self sufficiency and self-reliance are the key elements.


The Skills Section is about developing personal interests and learning practical skills. There are almost limitless possibilities to choose from. There is no set standard that participants must reach: they set their own goals and measure their progress against them.

Physical Recreation

By undertaking some form of organised and regular physical activity, participants show perseverance and improve their fitness. Their goal is to record their individual progress. Most team and individual sports are included, such as football, athletics, and archery.
