The Young Equestrian Leaders Award (YELA)

This is run by The Pony Club across the British Equestrian Federation (BEF) member bodies. The award is aimed at those between the ages of 13 and 25 years old with the view that we’d like to encourage young people to get involved with volunteering as much as possible. I, as I’m sure you will agree that volunteering is a great way for young people to develop skills, qualities and attributes which can support them through later life plus is a great way to give back to our centres and branches.

The award is designed to encourage young people to try as many roles as possible through a variety of member bodies with the view to developing a range of experiences, skills and reflecting on what they have gained from the opportunity. The award has three progressive stages: bronze, silver and gold which helps assist the young person to record the volunteering hours and guides them through reflection on what they have learnt via volunteering. All those who apply to take part in the YELA award scheme will receive recognition of the contribution they have given to the industry via certification and pin badges through to an award celebration for those achieving the Gold award. Attached are the promotion leaflets and supporting guideline which provide further details and even more detail can be found on the website: http://yela.org.uk/award-stages/
