The Duke of Edinburgh's International Award is a challenging, practical program offered all over the world to young people aged 14-25 years.
To earn an Award, each young person must learn a skill, improve their physical well being, volunteer in their community and experience a team adventure in a new environment. All Participants are supported by a network of adult Award Leaders, Assessors, and Supervisors.The central aim of the Scheme, which is recognised internationally, is to encourage young people to use their leisure time in a meaningful and worthwhile manner.
The key elements of our program are:
- Open to all young people aged 14 to 24.
- Three levels: Bronze, Silver, and Gold – each progressively more challenging.
- Four Sections: Physical Recreation, Skill, Voluntary Service, Adventurous Journey plus Gold Residential Project (Gold Level only).
- Achieving an Award recognises individual goal setting and self-improvement through persistence and achievement.
