Examples of Service
Bronze level credits are accrued for independently serving others. Young people can take part in service activities in a group but unlike Pin level, they must show a degree of independence. At Bronze level, young people make choices about what volunteering to do. Bronze level requires commitment and reliability. In addition to the 20 Home credits, 10 Away Credits are required at Bronze level, which evidences a level of independence.
