The Duke of Edinburgh’s Award is an international youth development program, empowering young people aged 14-24 to explore their full potential and find their purpose, passion and place in the world, regardless of their location or circumstance. To achieve an Award, the young person must learn a skill, improve their physical wellbeing, volunteer in their community and experience a team adventure in a new environment.

The Award includes an Adventurous Journey component which encourages a sense of adventure and discovery whilst undertaking a team journey or expedition. Participants must be supervised and assessed by suitably skilled, experienced and/or qualified Volunteer(s).
