Empowering the Youth of Seychelles

About Us

The Award programme concept is one of individual challenge. It presents to young people a balanced, non-competitive programme of voluntary activities which encourages personal discovery and growth, self-reliance, perseverance, responsibility to themselves and services to their community.



There are three levels of the Award: Bronze, Silver an Gold. At each level, participants must set themselves personal goals in each section. These goals should be achievable and progressive, and ultimately allow the young person to feel a sense of achievement when they complete each section.

Silver Award

Minimum age 15 years old, Minimum participation is 12 months (6 months if a Bronze Award holder)
