Award Leader

As a high school teacher and long-time Duke 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. While learning about outdoor survival and expedition skills, participants are contributing service to their home communities, improving physical fitness, developing personal interests, and building leadership skills. Seeing the pride and sense of accomplishment displayed on the faces of award recipients and knowing that you've made a difference in the lives of these young people is what being a Duke Leader is all about.
