SelaQui International School has introduced IAYP as a part of its co-curricular activity program. The International Award for Young People is an exciting self-development program for the youth, it equips the young with life skills , builds confidence and engages the youth with their communities.
IAYP aims at motivating young people aged between 14 and 25 years to become involved in a balanced program of voluntary self-development activities to take them through the potentially difficult period between adolescence and adulthood.
The Award’s concept is one of individual challenge, giving young people a balanced, non-competitive program of voluntary activities which encourage personal discovery and growth, self-reliance, perseverance, responsibility to themselves and service to their community. Those who participate in the Award are expected to follow its requirements in a non-competitive manner with a determination to succeed, either individually or as part of a team. The Award therefore is challenging, and can be undertaken at your own pace.
The Participation Age is between 14 and 25 years. The basic structure of the Award consists of 4 mandatory sections
