President’s Award for young people in Kenya

President’s Award for young people in Kenya

The President’s Award is a programme that was first introduced in the United Kingdom as the Duke of Edinburgh’s Award with the aim of encouraging young people to give useful service to others. It is also aimed to encourage the development of personal interest and practical skills, participation in physical recreation and improvement of performance, broaden experience through involvement with others in residential setting and develop a spirit of adventure and discovery while undertaking a journey in a group. The programme was later advanced to Kenya where it was named The President’s Award and the Head of State as its Patron

The Award is structured in three levels; Bronze, Silver and Gold. At the university level, participants register for the Gold Award. However, the three levels share similar activities but in varying intensity where the Gold participants put more commitment.

Participation in the Award programme has helped participants in personal development through the acquisition of several skills among them leadership. It has also helped build their self-confidence, sense of service and the drive to be achievers in their individual endeavours.
