International Award for Young People
IAYP (International Award For Young People)
The Award Programme was introduced in India in 1962 with a view to encouraging young people in the country to achieve their full growth potential within the framework of Indian society, to improve their moral, social and intellectual well-being, to ‘Equip them for Life’. Currently students from over 240 institutions across India participate in the Award Programme. So far over 100,000 young people have successfully gained their Awards. The IAYP is a non-governmental organisation (NGO) and is a full member of the Duke of Edinburgh’s International Award Association.
The Award is implemented through Open Award Centres (OAC), which are referred to as Youth Engaging in Society (‘YES’) Centres. These are primarily schools and other educational institutions which are licensed under an Agreement to implement the Award.
