The Dynamic Youth Award will be valid like this until August 2020 then it will be reviewed.
The Dynamic Youth Award (DYA) is a nationally recognised award for young people age 10yrs+, which uses a youth work approach, which provides a means of recording and evidencing wider achievement.
To complete a DYA the young people:
1. Set a challenge which will take at least 5 hours to complete, this challenge should be challenging but achievable.
2. Show their plan to a ‘peer’, this could be a brother, sister, friend and ask them to assess it.
3. Do the Challenge and record it as you go along (take pictures, keep a note of the time, record your learning).
4. Review you’re your Challenge by following the guidance.
5. Peer Assessment – show your Challenge to your Peer for a final review.
6. Submit to the Youth Participation Team at email@example.com or complete the online form below.
