Support our "100 for 50" campaign!

As the Chair of the Board of Directors of The Duke of Edinburgh’s International Award in Saskatchewan, I am inviting you to invest in the leaders of tomorrow, by supporting the Duke of Ed Award program.  We are launching a “100 for 50” campaign, hoping to inspire 100 people to donate a minimum of $50 to this worthy program.  This will enable us to cover registration fees for 100 participants who might not otherwise be able to afford participation in our program.

This link will take you to a short video that was filmed at the University of Regina during the national youth conference we hosted there in August 2018.  It is well worth the watch, the message is clear and inspiring.  We are not asking for a simple donation, we are asking you to invest in the youth of Saskatchewan.  To make a donation, simply click this link. 

Please feel free to share this with your friends, families and colleagues.  Help us reach our goal, and thank you for supporting the Duke of Edinburgh’s International Award in Saskatchewan.

Sincerely,
Jim Deane, Chair, Saskatchewan Division

Marian Donnelly has been working in the creative industries since 1975.  Between 1976 and 1996, Marian worked as an artist manager, concert and festival producer, tour manager and in a variety of music industry-related capacities in Winnipeg, Toronto and Vancouver.  In 1996, she moved back home to Regina to work as the Executive Director of SaskMusic.  In 2002, she worked for a brief period of time as a Cultural Industries Consultant to the Province of Saskatchewan, and was then hired as the General Manager of the Globe Theatre in 2003.  In 2006, Marian returned to school and earned her Masters of Business Administration degree.

Since then, she has worked as a consultant to a number of non-profit organizations, developing strategic plans, governance policies and other corporate documents.  She also renovated a heritage building in Regina's downtown, which she opened in 2011 as the Creative City Centre.  The CCC is home to a number of artist studios and also has a visual art gallery and small performance venue called the Hague Gallery.  Since May 2011, the CCC has presented over 200 shows per year at this vibrant but intimate little venue.    

Marian teaches Arts Administration, and a number of workshops on grant writing, marketing, event production and other non-profit business-related courses around the province of Saskatchewan. She has mentored hundreds of young artists and entrepreneurs over the years, and is passionate about ensuring that our next generation has the skills and support they need to succeed.  Marian is excited to be ?leading the team at The Duke Of Edinburgh's International Award in Saskatchewan!

Instructions to Participants for Completing Preliminary Training
 

To help you meet the requirements for the preliminary training for your Adventurous Journey, we have developed  a couple of informational videos and a booklet. You will be able to complete your preliminary training requirement for your award by watching each of the video sections as well as reading the Preliminary Training Booklet.  At the end of each section, you will have to complete a test. After receiving 80% or higher, you will need to screen shot your results (by going to the start button,search for snipping tool, put + at top of page and drag down to copy page), save and upload it to your Online Record Book. You will not need an initial but will have to attach all the certificate sections to your online record book to have the requirement completed. These videos do not preclude you from doing additional online research or taking advantage of the many other training opportunities that may be available to you. The more, the better!

Please remember, your preliminary training needs to be done prior to your adventurous journey. Please ensure you have read this document to help you plan your adventurous journey. If you are unsure if your trip will qualify, please give our office a call at 306-780- 9278 or email us at saskatchewan@dukeofed.org. The worst is when participants think their  trip will qualify and it doesn’t. We are here to support you through your Duke of Ed award!

Although the adventurous journey section is noted as the most difficult part of The Award to many, it also tends  to be very memorable. We hope your adventure will challenge you to develop self-reliance by undertaking an interesting journey of discovery. We anticipate you will develop an awareness of your natural environment and the importance of protecting it. Good luck and have fun!
