The Jack Petchey Foundations Flagship Programme
The Boys’ Brigade in London is proud to be one of the Jack Petchey Foundations partners, working together to recognise the achievements of young people across London.
To achieve an award, a young person is nominated by their peers within Boys’ Brigade. 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.
Each award winner will receive a certificate, pin badge and a book from Sir Jack himself. They will also choose how to spend a £300 grant to benefit their Boys’ Brigade Company. Similarly to the Leaders Award, this could be spent on a piece of equipment, or it could be spent on a day trip that would enhance the programme of your group – the choice is down to the young person who won the award.
Nominations for the Young Peoples Awards can be made between 1st January and 31st May and between 1st September and 31st October each year. Once you have been notified that a young person has achieved the award, companies have six months in which to use the grant money.
