Become a Volunteer

Volunteering is one of the most important and most rewarding ways to get involved. Award Leaders encourage participants and help make the national program run smoothly.

Teachers, coaches, parents, Scout leaders, and patrons comprise an integral part of the International Award for Young People Nigeria. Award Leaders help mentor participants by overseeing activities, verifying their work, and helping carryout the Adventurous Journey.
