A series of challenges for young people aged 12 – 14 to achieve the Aspire Young Leader Award
All young people who attend the Active Leaders Academy will receive a challenge card, outlining each challenge and the number of stickers awarded for the successful completion. Work your way through the challenges, collecting all stickers to receive your Aspire Young Leaders Award.
This Academy provides young people with the knowledge and confidence to organise and lead activities and the practical experience of supporting small groups of children.
How is the Aspire Active Leaders’ Academy delivered?
As the programme is challenge based, there is no minimum and maximum time for completion. The length of time taken to complete all the challenges will depend on the young person’s attendance and willingness to learn.
How many challenges will my child complete?
There are 30 challenges to complete in total, which are split into 5 categories. However, some of the challenges can be completed away from camps.
Is there a final assessment?
No. There is no pass or fail nor is there a final assessment.
How long does it take to complete?
Typically, it will take roughly 5 days to complete the Bronze certificate, 10 days to complete the Silver certificate and 20 days to complete the Gold certificate. However, the programme has been designed to allow Young Leaders to move through the challenges at their own pace and will be encouraged to complete challenges when their mentor feels necessary.
