The Award Near You
What is an Award Unit?
The Award in Barbados facilitates the establishment of Award Units to deliver the Award to Participants.
Award Units can be:
Sporting or Social Clubs
A group of interested parents who form their own association
Award Units then appoint Award Leaders who become the main contact and the ones who, after appropriate training, guide Participants on their Award journey.

“...sounds harmless you think to yourself, ‘why not?’ a few years later you’re at Government house shaking hands with Prince Edward, the Earl of Wessex…Who would have ever imagined that years of grueling hikes, busted knee caps and lost toenails would have landed you in a place only few can imagine.”
