The President's Award for Youth Empowerment is an independent, structured youth development programme and is the South African implementation of The Duke of Edinburgh International Award. It is recognised and implemented by many schools, universities, and employers. Subject to eligibility by age, youth from all around the country can participate.
Partnership with SCOUTS South Africa
SCOUTS South Africa has an established partnership with The President's Award so that Scouts, Rovers and young Scouters can complete the award in conjunction with the Scouting Advancement programmes, and at a reduced cost. Within Scouting, the President's Award is recognised as a Challenge Award and has its own unique badge.
Please visit the President's Award page on the SCOUTS South Africa website for more details.
