DUKE OF EDINBURGH'S AWARD
COMPLETE YOUR DUKE OF ED WITH US
The Duke of Edinburgh’s International Award is a global non-formal education and learning framework that recognizes and celebrates young people's achievements outside of the classroom.The Award allows young people to determine what they are passionate about, regardless of their background, culture or access to resources. By creating opportunities for young people to develop skills, get physically active, give service and experience adventure, the Award can play a critical role in their development.
The Duke of Edinburgh Award is open to anyone 14-24 years old and shows employers your commitment, dedication, and engagement towards personal growth.
There are 3 levels; bronze, silver and gold. Each level requires the participant to participate for a particular number of weeks (26 for bronze) and hours (1 per week) committed to better themselves through Community Service, Skill Building & Physical Recreation. The Adventurous Journey encourages your spirit of adventure.
