New Brunswick - First Nations

The Duke of Edinburgh’s Award has teamed up with the First Nations of New Brunswick in an attempt to fully engage the First Nation population within the province to become the leaders of tomorrow; by encouraging self-directed progress towards succession by encouraging their youth to participate in The Award.

The Award gives a means of developing healthy, productive lifestyles while setting and achieving goals. It is stressed that there is no time limit to complete The Award (although a participant will 'age-out' of the Programme on their 25th birthday), it is achieved at the participants own pace and level.

The Duke of Edinburgh’s Award not only motivates our New Brunswick youth to become active members in our community, but it also encourages the adult population to become active leaders and role models within their communities by starting up their own Duke of Edinburgh’s Award group and helping our youth achieve their Award!​
