The MAVIS Award – Motivation, Ambition, Vision, Inspiration, Success
The MAVIS Awards celebrate the achievements of young people and young adult ex-offenders who have managed to turn their lives around in the face of overwhelming challenges.
They may have overcome addiction, stepped away from gang culture and violence, desisted from crime, reconnected with education, undertaken training opportunities, found long-term employment, shown a commitment to helping others or become a contributing member of their local community.
The MAVIS awards recognises the courage and determination the young people have shown to become the very best they can be and applauds their achievement, which for some, may be the very first time in their lives that their efforts have been positively acknowledged.
Awarded annually, the MAVIS awards are open to all young people aged 15-30, who can be nominated by an individual, group or organisation, who feel the young person has made significant progress in turning their lives around.
There are 3 awards, each offering a prize of £1,000 along with a pair of VIP tickets to a major music festival for the winners:
MAVIS Community Award
MAVIS Ex-Offender Award
MAVIS Youth Award
The winners will be presented with their prizes at an annual major music festival that will take place in early August 2020.
