Continuing a legacy of infinite potential

Prince Philip was a champion of the infinite potential of young people and a pioneer in non-formal education and learning. As we mark his 100th year, the Award family is determined to ensure that The Duke’s vision can continue and grow for many years to come.

This year, we launch our ‘Founder’s 100’ campaign to help us to achieve that. Over the next three years, we plan to raise in excess of $3 million, to, among other things, help enable more young people in Canada start their Award journey, particularly those from at risk and marginalized backgrounds.
