Through the YAA young people are encouraged to actively participate in their own “Social Development Journey”, developing, acknowledging and articulating life skills and competencies which help them to become a positive force for change in their own lives, and the lives of others. The awards based system provides recognition of achievement and encourages young people to reach their full potential.  The awards are tiered, Bronze through to Platinum, although can be started at any point.

Aimed at young people aged 14+ the awards provide a framework which recognises the four levels of responsibility taken by young people participating in activities that interest them.
