DofEThe Duke of Edinburgh's Award
The Duke of Edinburgh’s Award has been a focus of The Duke of Edinburgh’s life and work for four decades since achieving his own Gold Award in 1986.
Founded by Prince Philip in 1956, The Award helps young people build their confidence and develop key life skills in order to reach their full potential. Today nearly half a million young people are actively doing their DofE in the UK and The Duke of Edinburgh’s International Award is operating in more than 130 countries.
The Duke of Edinburgh’s International Award
The Duke of Edinburgh’s International Award is a self-development program that is open to all 14-24-years-old and encourages young people to design their own program of activities, set their own goals and challenge themselves. The Award is about personal development; not a competition with others.
