Celebrating staff and volunteers who go ‘the extra mile’ to support young people!
The Jack Petchey Foundation Leader Awards scheme highlights and recognises the incredible commitment of adults who work with schools and youth organisations and are dedicated to supporting young people. The awards give young people the chance to say ‘thank you’ to these incredible adults!
The scheme is run in a similar way to the Young Persons Award Scheme, and requires the involvement of young people in selecting a leader who has inspired and supported them within their Boys’ Brigade. Like the young people who win the awards, leaders are also invited to the Jack Petchey Awards Ceremony to celebrate their hard work and to receive their certificate and medallion in front of their friends and family.
For those leaders who receive an award, within 12 months they are then able to apply for a small grant of up to £750 to enhance their work with their Company or Battalion. This could be to cover the cost of new equipment or to pay for activities on a residential event.
All nominations for the leader awards should be made through your Battalion Secretary as only one nomination can be received per Battalion. Download the nomination form here
