Chelmsford Athletics Club - Jack Petchey Awards

Jack Petchey Awards



The Jack Petchey Foundation’s vision is of a world where young people have high aspirations; the opportunity to develop their potential; the chance to be architects of their own future; to play a full part in society and to be valued and recognised for the positive things they achieve.


They aim to enable young people (aged 11 – 25 years in London, Essex & the Algarve area of Portugal), to achieve their potential by inspiring, investing in, developing and promoting activities that increase their personal, social, emotional and physical development.


They categorise their aims as:


  • Investing: in youth organisations and programmes that represent value for money and create inclusive and positive opportunities for young people to engage, excel and achieve.


  • Instigating: new, innovative and high profile programmes that fill gaps in current education or youth work practice and that give young people the opportunity to develop new skills and experiences.


  • Influencing: bringing about a change in the way that society sees, values and treats young people; highlighting the positive things that young people achieve and challenge the often negative portrayal of youth in our society, through public celebrations and promotion in the media; and influencing change by enabling young people to “be the change they want to see in the world”



One of the initiatives that the Foundation promote is the Jack Petchey Achievement Award Scheme.  Chelmsford AC participates in this Scheme, which makes regular awards to members of the club who have excelled in their field.
