ABOUT THE PRESIDENT’S AWARD

The President’s Award was introduced to South Africa in 1983 and relaunched in 1994 by President Nelson Mandela who was passionate about education. Together with the Duke of Edinburgh this programme aims to help children and young adults become well-rounded individuals.

Since its inception, The President’s Award has become the most successful youth empowerment programme offering young people a range of opportunities to help them unlock their potential. It encourages young people to learn new skills, get physically active, volunteer within their communities and discover a sense of adventure outside the classroom. They are able to develop their own bespoke programmes that they choose from a wide variety of different activities.

Young people who participate in The President’s Award learn to be responsible and driven individuals who ambitiously follow their dreams.

“I have become more independent,
wiser and confident.”
– The President Award participant
