Duke of Edinburgh Award

Around the world, more than a million 14 - 24 year olds around the world are stepping outside their comfort zone. They’re learning to lead. They’re safely supporting their communities, getting active and gaining new skills. They’re discovering adventure and having fun. They’re participating in The Duke of Edinburgh’s International Award.

Through the Award, young people can develop the crucial skills they need to navigate change, build resilience, and create positive habits. All while gaining an internationally recognized accreditation which is valued by governments, businesses and educational institutes around the world.
