The Duke of Edinburgh’s Award are a charity who aim to create a world where young people can reach their full potential whatever their circumstances. Their ethos are to enable every young person of every background to do their DofE and succeed, regardless of any barriers.
Why / our objective / the outcome
Teenage and early adult years shape a person. They lay the foundation for who they are, where they’ll go, what they’ll become. For some young people, these years represent a tough start to their adult lives. As well as dealing with the usual pressures of growing up, they often face challenges no young person should have to experience, such as poverty, lack of aspiration and vulnerability to crime.
Achieving a DofE Award is a game-changer, taking young people on a different life path and empowering them to break the cycle, to believe in themselves and that anything is possible. Just £15 can help shape one person’s future, imagine how many lives could benefit if we reach our target of £7,500!
- The DofE is the world’s leading youth achievement award, giving millions of 14 to 24 year olds the opportunity to be the very best they can be.
- Over the next 6 years, the DofE will enhance the lives of 2 millions people giving them self confidence, a sense of purpose, responsibility and resilience.
