DofE expeditions challenge

Why do The Duke of Edinburgh's Award?

The DofE is all about going the extra mile – gaining new skills, pushing yourself physically, helping others and exploring new territories.

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.
