What is the International Award?

The International Award is for anyone (aged 14-24) who is looking to a life of adventure and independence. The International Award is fully inclusive (so you don’t need to be sporty or academic) and the best bit is that it is led by you!

You get to choose;

From section activities to the Adventurous Journey… You are the master of your own destiny. Everyone can participate but it’s up to you how much you get out of it! Choose projects that really interest and excite you, learn new skills and experience a little more of life.


You can complete International Award at 3 different levels; Bronze, Silver or Gold Award. (More details can be found in the relevant guide under useful links!)

Each award has 4 different components (5 for Gold) – skills, physical recreation, service, adventurous journey (and residential project).

You will find that your fitness improves, you will contribute to your community in a meaningful way and you will develop not only your selected skill but also those needed to successfully complete your adventurous journey.
