The Duke of Edinburgh’s Award program is an internationally recognised award that invites young people aged 14-25 to realise their ambitions and to change their world.
It has three levels: Bronze, Silver and Gold. To achieve each level, participants create their own program of activities and goals over a set length of time and across four sections: Service, Skill, Physical Recreation and Adventurous Journey. Gold-level Award participants also undertake a fifth section: Residential Project– To broaden experience through involvement with others in a residential setting.
Through participation in The Duke of Edinburgh, young people are empowered with the skills and opportunities to make meaningful decisions, enhance life and work skills, live active and healthy lifestyles, contribute to their communities, and build their sense of adventure in the face of the unknown and unfamiliar.
