Action4Youth are Approved Activity Providers and offer planning, training and expeditions at all 3 award levels for 14-24 year olds. Bronze and Silver are run locally in the Aylesbury and Chilterns area and Gold expeditions are done in rugged country - such as Snowdonia, Brecons, The Dales and The Lake District. We have a team of highly qualified instructors and assessors.

Why do DofE?

The Duke of Edinburgh programme gives young people aged 14-24, the opportunity to develop themselves in scenarios they would not normally experience. The fun but challenging expeditions take young people out of their comfort zones, whilst building confidence, teamwork, life skills and friendships.
