International Award For Young People

International Award - SelaQui
International award for young people

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

  • Services
  • Adventurous
  • Journey
  • Skills
  • Physical Recreation

There are 3 levels of the Award – Bronze, Silver & Gold. Participants must complete the four mandatory sections of Service, Adventurous Journey, Skill & Physical Recreation.

Participants can undertake all three categories of the Award programme or enter directly at any of the three levels in the following age group; Bronze Award (for those over 14), Silver Award (for those over 15) and Gold Award (for those over 16 years).

The minimum period of participation is

  • 6 months for Bronze
  • 12 months for Silver
  • 18 months for Gold

For each of these levels a participant is required to undertake activities under each of the four sections. At Gold level, participants undertake a Residential Project in addition.
