Kick London are delighted to have been part of the Jack Petchey Achievement Award Scheme since September 2012.
The Jack Petchey Achievement Award Scheme runs in over 2,000 schools, colleges and youth organisations across London and Essex. The Achievement Award Scheme aims to enable schools, colleges and youth organisations to recognise, reward and celebrate the achievements of their young people. Jack Petchey wants young people to raise their aspirations, believe in themselves and make a contribution to their society.

Achievement Awards are designed to recognise a wide range of achievement. It is not just about being clever, or gifted, but about putting the effort in and doing your best. The scheme works well because young people themselves are involved in nominating and selecting the winners.
- Kick London can select one young person aged 11 – 25 each term to receive an Achievement Award. The winner is publicly congratulated for their achievement and receives:
- A framed certificate
- A Jack Petchey Young Achiever badge
- A grant of £250; designed to give the winner the opportunity to make a financial contribution to their organisation, and spent on a project of their choice.
Young people are nominated from across our academies and projects by their peers, coaches, volunteers or parents. Winners are chosen by a group of young volunteer coaches and we publicise their achievement through our newsletter, website, and at our annual tournament.
