Deliver the Award

The Award is a catalyst  

Today’s young people face a broad range of challenges and are bombarded by information, expectation, and uncertainty. They are growing up with complexities and challenges unseen by the previous generations.

If they are to succeed they need the skills, resilience and understanding to ensure they can take on unexpected challenges. The Award provides a program framework that develops these skills and inspires young people to unlock their potential.  




If you work in a capacity where you engage with young people, The Duke of Edinburgh's International Award provides an opportunity to help you enhance your developmental programming. We offer a framework that weaves into the fabric of what you do, and further supports your work to build young people's skills.  

Organizations that sign-up to deliver the Award are joining a growing family of Award ​Centres who want to use this framework to help young people find their purpose, passion and place in the world.

Become an Award Centre 

Award Centre’s are organizations that choose to partner with the Award to deliver it to their members. An Award Centre is generally associated with a youth organization such as a school, community centre or organized youth group. Our Award Centres have trained Coordinators and Leaders who support and mentor participants as they work towards achieving their Award(s). See our step-by-step guide on ‘Becoming an Award Centre.’
