The Award is a leading structured (non-formal education) youth development program, empowering all young Australians aged 14-24 to explore their full potential regardless of their location or circumstance. The Award is a fully inclusive program and has no social, political, or religious affiliations.

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, Skill, 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
