What is the Duke of Edinburgh's International Award?
The DofE International Award is a global framework for non-formal education and learning that motivates young people to challenge themselves outside the classroom in the areas of volunteering, sports, talents and expeditions. Taking part supports them to experience self-efficacy, discover strengths they never knew they had and equips them with competencies that will help them lead a fulfilling life and shape our societies.
The Award can be offered by any organisation that works with people aged 14-24. This includes schools, training companies, businesses, youth centres, children’s and youth homes, sports clubs or youth correctional institutions.
The programme’s motto is “There’s more in you than you think!” (Kurt Hahn)
