The Jack Petchey Achievement Award Scheme is the Jack Petchey Foundation’s flagship programme which recognises outstanding young people aged 11-25 across London and Essex. Through the scheme we get to celebrate the achievements of our Explorers and apply for a package of grants to support their activities.
The Achievement Awards are primarily about recognising those who put in the effort and do their best.Sir Jack Petchey CBE
Awards mean different things to different people. The Achievement Awards may be used to recognise a personal triumph for someone who has faced a challenge, an Explorer who has pushed themselves outside of their comfort zone or it may be an opportunity to recognise the outstanding efforts of a team player.
An Explorer is nominated by their peers. An important part of the scheme is the involvement of the Explorers in selecting the award winners for their hard work and efforts. We want the Explorers to recognise and celebrate the success of their peers. Details of how to nominate will be shared by the Explorer leaders.
