JCB Team at Award Office today

The JCB Team visits the IAYP National Office today, they will meet the team members and help build up the HR strength. JCB is the HR Partner of Award in India, and have promised to sponsor all HR needs of the Award in India. We sometimes get tempted to call them the first friends of the Award in India, as they have been very supportive and over the year have enthusiastically helped us build a great Award team in India. Welcome Mr. Rajiv Kapoor , Vice President HR and Mr. Harish Kerpal, who supports IAYP as the single point of contact! Big thanks to Mr. Vipin Sondhi, MD JCB India and the JCB UK management for all they do for us.

Award Programme Foundation (APF)

The Trustees of the Foundation meet in New Delhi, on 21st January 2010. The members of the Trust will review the work of the IAYP India (The Duke of Edinburgh's Award) and will guide the team on the future plans of the Award Programme in India.

Cherish Service & Relationship

The goal of the International Award for Young People to Cherish Service and Relationship fits like a perfect glove  with the objective of numerous companies, non profit organizations, local community groups and the Government. As all these sectors believe that empowering the youth, the future of a country, the future of the world holds the key to a progressive society.

The Award Partners all believe that the doing the Award develops essential skills such as confidence, improved communication, leadership, resilience and team working- all essential for a fast paced world of today. The Philosophy of the Award to be individualistic, non-competitive and flexible allows for the Award Programme to be integrated into daily lives without any changes in other commitments of a young persons life. As a matter of  fact, the Programme allows very individual to step outside the competitive, fast paced world of today and focus on one's self-development, to challenge only oneself.

For example, the Corporate sector sees the Award as a perfect mechanism to allow young employees to expand on their experiences by intergrating it with existing training and development programmes including apprenticeships, a level, graduate or other schemes; thus enhancing Corporate Responsibility agendas by promoting volunteering, involvement in the community, a better understanding of the environment and a healthier and fitter workforce.

As we move into a new decade, it becomes all the more imperative to partner and "Equip for Life".
