The Duke of Ed Award believes that not all learning happens in the classroom and our aim is to help equip young Canadians aged 14-24 for success in life. By recognizing all of the amazing things young people can do and learn outside the boundaries of formal education, the Award empowers them to discover hidden talents, develop untapped leadership potential, make a difference in their community and explore the wonders of the great outdoors.
The personal journey to earn the Award requires young people to look beyond their comfort zone and tap into their sense of discovery. Participants set and achieve personal goals in activities they want to experience and develop, making each Award a unique journey. Simply put, they design a blueprint to transform their lives and we support them each step of the way.
The Duke of Edinburgh's International Award recognizes participants' milestones at the Bronze, Silver and Gold levels, during which they challenge themselves in the following areas:
Service - Giving back
Skill- Find your genius
Physical Recreation - Break a sweat
Adventurous Journey - Get wild and explore
Residential Project (at the Gold level) - Go away with others and find yourself
