About the YOB Awards
The Youth on Board (YOB) Awards are an exclusively youth-led
rolling award scheme that recognises innovative and exciting youth
participation, both from young people and the projects and
organisations that support them.
The British Youth Council's membership of young people wanted to
celebrate the benefits of involving young people and encourage more
organisations to engage young people in their work.

leaders for the following awards:

ideas and practices that have made a real difference to how
organisations work with young people.
Inspiring Project Award:
Recognise efforts made by projects to engage young people and give

The Make a Difference Award:
Mark the achievements of an individual young person who has made a
real difference through their role in the running of an
organisation or project.
Youth-led Award: Recognise
youth-led organisations that are providing a platform for young
people and young voices and making a difference at a local,
national or international level.
