Ignite Award is a WA based self-development program for young people aged from 9 to 13 years.
It is a challenging program of discovery and provides an opportunity for young people to learn valuable skills, be physically active, help others in the community and experience adventures. It also fosters positive self-development and leadership skills.
There are 4 levels of Ignite Award, Levels 1, 2, 3 & 4 and to achieve any level young people need to create a program of activities across four activity sections:
- Physical Activity: To encourage participation in physical activity and improve performance and fitness
- Hobby: To encourage the development of personal interests and practical skills
- Volunteering: To develop and encourage a sense of community spirit and responsibility to others
- Adventure: Encourage a spirit of exploration and increase confidence in unfamiliar places
Young people can complete the activities in a single session or over an agreed period of time.
