The Duke of Edinburgh's Award
Who we are
Help us transform young peoples lives!
The Duke of Edinburghs Award is supporting over 400,000 people aged 14-25 from all backgrounds every year. We inspire, guide and support young people to face lifes challenges, and we recognise their achievements.
We give young people of every background the opportunity to succeed. We support over 49,000 disadvantaged young people every year. Our ethos is to enable every young person of every background to take part in our programme and succeed, regardless of their barriers.
We also support about 40,000 volunteers who instil a sense of adventure and encourage young people through the Duke of Edinburghs Award.
Through the DofE programme young people learn new skills, take part in sport, volunteer in their communities and experience the challenge and adventure of an expedition.
Your generosity will have a lasting impact on young peoples behaviour, skills and life chances. Our programme enables young people to develop through personal experience, by inspiring them to spend up to two years volunteering, learning a skill, getting fit and undertaking an expedition. The result is the worlds leading achievement award for young people, recognised by employers and universities alike.
