The Award is a Catalyst
Why Deliver the Award?
The Award supplements your program and/or formal curriculum by inspiring young people to invest in their personal growth and continually overcome new challenges. Taking part in the Award encourages young people to step outside their comfort zones, find balance and build intrinsic motivation as well as resilience.
Your participants can join a million young people who are currently doing the Award around the world, in addition to millions of Award alumni.
The Award is recognized in more than 130 countries and territories. Award achievements are acknowledged by business leaders, post-secondary institutions and governments across the globe.
The Award supports growth and development of lifelong skills in your young people, staff and volunteers by offering the Award framework to engage in.
As a high school teacher and long-time Award Leader I see the Duke of Edinburgh programme as an incredible opportunity for personal development for young people that will help them be successful throughout their lives.Dave Maynard - Award Leader, Duncan MacMillan Rural High School
