Youth Achievement Awards

The Youth Achievement Awards (YAA) encourage young people to take responsibility in selecting and planning activities. 

The award was established in 1997 and are an activity based approach to peer education.  They support the development of a wide range of life skills by enabling young people to take a progressive level of responsibility in order to move up the awards scales.

The YAA has become established in a range of youth organisations, schools and educational projects and YES Outdoors have introduced its Mentees to the Bronze Achievement Award.  This award is accredited by ASDAN

For more information about the YAA, please visit the Youth Achievement Awards Website.  These Awards have helped young people move forward with their lives once they have gained vital recognition for their achievements.  There is no other organisation in Islington offering the YAA award.
