Special Projects

Our Special Projects is designed to extend the Award, particularly to young people considered to be marginalized or at risk in society. It also creates the opportunity for Award Groups to design and undertake social projects and initiatives as part of their Award activities.

You can join our small group of generous supporters to help more young people undergo through the Award through any of our Special Projects. Many beneficiaries of our Special Projects have gotten the opportunity to share their stories in London. Read about them below
