Leaders of Today, and Tomorrow


By doing the Duke of Edinburgh’s International Award, young people ages 14-24 from any background or ability can be empowered with not just confidence, but the desire to create meaningful change; to find their Passion, Perseverance,Purpose, Perspective and Place in the world and become World Ready.

Today, more than ever, it is imperative for young Canadians to learn to navigate uncertainty. In finding what drives them, all young Canadians doing the Award are encouraged to develop the lifelong abilities they need to become outstanding members of society. The Award uses well-rounded experiential learning to help our Participants find that drive.

Over the coming weeks, we will share inspiring stories of how the Award has, with your help, transformed the lives of young people.

When you invest in young Canadians, you invest in our future. 
The Duke of Ed offers numerous ways to create possibilities for our youth. To ensure our continued success, you can support our goal to serve as many young people in BC & Yukon as possible. By contributing one time or setting up reoccurring donations, your impact grows exponentially through our Participants.

We invite you to make a donation in the honor of someone special. Just as we ensure that our Participants can personalize their Award experiences to find what drives them, we make sure that you can personalize your investment.
