The Youth Achievement Awards Levels:
Youth Challenge – Introduces the Youth Achievement Awards – a lighter touch award
Social Engagement through the YAA BRONZE – recognises and encourages young people to get involved
Social Learning through the YAA SILVER – recognises and encourages young people to work with others and share responsibility
Social Action through the YAA GOLD – recognises and encourages young people to take individual responsibility and play an active role in organising activities. This can be community based.
Social Leadership through the YAA PLATINUM – recognises and encourages young people to move into a leadership position.
The award does not come with a programme; instead, the open framework allows young people, along with their learning providers, to mould the awards around existing youth work, activities and/or school programmes.
