Jack Petchey Foundation – Achievement Awards
Every month the focus group work with youth workers to select a young person from one of our projects to receive a Jack Petchey award for achievement. They receive £250 to spend on an event with at least 9 other young people. This means that we can give lots of opportunities to do new things such as a roller disco, Airsoft, a day out on the South Bank, or trampolining.
Winners receive their certificate at the Christmas Ball and also have the opportunity to attend a regional presentation event.
Jason was nominated for the Jack Petchey Achievement Award in August 2016 by both his peers and the youth workers for his leadership skills and commitment to our summer holiday programme. He was one of a team of 10 peer leaders who had trained in youth work skills, planned and delivered the week’s programme of activities to over 190 young people who came along to join in the fun. His peers say he is hard working, kind and fun to be with. In November, he joined the Ignite team as an apprentice youth worker.
