What is the Award?
The Duke of Edinburgh’s International Award is an internationally recognised program for young people. Equipping them for life and work. By creating opportunities for young people to develop skills, get physically active, give service and experience adventure. The Award can play a critical role in their development.
I am also able to assist you with planning your own Adventurous Project. This is an option if you are over 18 and wish to complete a solo hike and combine your practice and qualifying journeys. However special approval is required by AwardsWA.
Support every step of the way
