The world is in a critical times with our dear country Nigeria not left out yet, THE INTERNATIONAL AWARD FOR YOUNG NIGERIA has not seize to impact young people with skills to be successful despite the effects of the COVID-19 pandemic on their lives, work and study. Self-isolation, quarantine and social distancing measures mean that for many continuing the Award in their usual way has become increasingly difficult or impossible.
The Award plays a crucial role, now more than ever, in supporting the individual health and wellbeing of Award participants, as well as in underpinning social cohesion and creating a vital sense of community and connection for young people.
To support participants during this challenging time and to encourage young people to stay active, the Foundation has implemented some temporary changes to the Award Requirements. These changes are temporary and valid for the period 01 May – 31 December 2020.
The temporary changes are supported by further guidance that is designed to clarify existing Award requirements outlined in the International Handbook for Award Leaders (7th edition – 2019). For further information, please download guide below:
