We are extremely grateful to the British Embassy in Berlin for the kind, generous and continuous support of our Award Ceremonies and the Award in Germany.
Without our honorary members the Duke of Edinburgh’s International Award in Germany would not be what is is.
We are deeply grateful to:

Without the outstanding commitment of our Award Leaders, the implementation of the Duke Award would not be possible. They are the “Super-Dukes”, the heroines of the daily work on the ground, who support young people to start a self-determined and fulfilled life with self-confidence and a strong belief in their abilities. We thank them all from the bottom of our hearts.
