The National Youth Achievement Award (NYAA) is an exciting personal challenge to young people between the ages of 14 and 25. It is a balanced program of activities design to equip youths with personal qualities and skills to make a difference to themselves, their communities and their world.
There are 3 levels of the Award in which you can participate – Bronze, Silver and Gold, with each successive level requiring a greater level of commitment and determination. We strongly encourage SP students to take up NYAA Gold as it can be easily achieved in the 3 years of student life in SP.
The NYAA Program is a do-it-yourself kit for youth development allowing you to tailor the program to suit your own needs, interests and level of commitment. The program is divided into three levels which vary in difficulty and commitment. Within each level, you are required to complete various sections that will develop your physical, social and mental skills which will serve you well into your future.
