The Boys’ Brigade in London is pleased to be working with The Jack Petchey Foundation to recognise the achievements of our young people through their Achievement Awards scheme.
The Achievement Awards are primarily about recognising those who put in the effort and do their best.
Sir Jack Petchey CBE
Jack Petchey Achievement Award winners are young people who have gone above and beyond to achieve – perhaps when others thought they might fail. Each year, the Jack Petchey Foundation recognise 14,000 Achievement Award winners and invest £3.5m through the Achievement Awards scheme.
Awards mean different things to different people. The Achievement Awards are not solely for academic achievement – they may be used to recognise a personal triumph for someone who has faced a challenge, a young person who has pushed themselves outside of their comfort zone or it may be an opportunity to recognise the outstanding efforts of a team player.
A young person is nominated by their peers in their group. An important part of the scheme is the involvement of young people in selecting the award winners for their hard work and efforts.
Each award winner will receive a certificate, pin badge and a book from Sir Jack himself. They will also choose how to spend a £250 grant to benefit their group. All award winners are invited to attend a Jack Petchey Celebration event to be presented with a medallion in front of their families, friends and VIP’s.
Nominations for Achievement Awards for young people can be submitted online (CLICK HERE) by Companies directly to London District. Each year every Battalion within the District has a number of awards allocated, the number of awards differs between Battalions. On confirmation that a nomination has been accepted and processed a certificate will be sent out and the grant payment will be made directly into the Company account.
Leaders awards should be submitted via your Battalion Secretary as only one nomination should be received for each Battalion.
