International Award

Collège du Léman is going to be offering The International Award. This is an exciting self-development programme available to all 14 to 25 year olds. Over 7 million young people worldwide have taken up the Award challenge.

The Award is tough but it is about individual challenge, not about reaching specific standards set by someone else. Young people design their own Award Programme, set their own goals, and record their own progress. The only person they compete against is themselves, by challenging their own beliefs about what they can achieve.

Young people who do the Award:

  • Discover what they are made of
  • Make an impact on their community
  • Develop a set of life skills.
  • Most of all, they have fun
