Duke of Edinburgh

dukeLogoThe Award – What is it?

The Award is an enriching program that invites young people between the ages of 14 and 25 to participate in a number of activities over a set length of time.

Participation is entirely voluntary and is structured so that participants can design their own unique program centred around their interests and passions. The Award is available to all young people aged between 14 and 25. There are three levels to The Award: Bronze/silver/gold.

Each level of The Award has four mandatory Sections:

Fitness/physical recreation – Break a sweat and improve your physical fitness. This could be through a team sport, individual pursuit or simply getting out there and working up a sweat.

Skill – unleash your talents and broaden your abilities. Anything from refereeing to DJing to learning a musical instrument. Do your thing.

Volunteering – Connect with your community and realise your passions. Any area of interest in the community, such as youth work, the environment or charity work.

Adventurous Journey – Discover your sense of adventure and bond with your mates. A journey into an unfamiliar environment with a group – bushwalking, canoeing, cycling, an urban adventure – staying overnight and testing your resilience.
