Member of Christ Church Cathedral Wins Award
Matthew Dunbar has won a Gold President's Award for his contribution to our youth ministry. He is seen here receiving his award from Prince Edward
The President’s Award for Youth Empowerment is part of the Duke of Edinburgh’s International Award.
It is an exciting personal challenge for young people between the ages of 14 and 24. It started in the United Kingdom in 1956 and was first available in South Africa in 1983.
There are five sections to the Award Programme: Service, Adventurous Journey, physical recreation, skills and residential project.
There are three levels of achievement : Bronze, Silver and Gold with each level requiring extra input.
The President’s Award is celebrating its 60th Anniversary with Prince Edward handing out one of the certificate for the GOLD to Matthew Dunbar. In order to achieve this Matthew did his residential project by helping at the Diocesan 2015 Youth Camp in Belle Bella.
