The Duke of Edinburgh's Award - Sheffield

Description

A DofE programme is a real adventure from beginning to end.  It doesn’t matter who you are or where you’re from, you just need to be aged between 14 and 24 and be aware that there’s more to life than sitting on a sofa letting life pass you by.

 

Levels

You can do programmes at three levels, which when completed, lead to a Bronze, Silver or Gold Duke of Edinburgh's Award.

 

Sections

You achieve your Award by completing a personal programme of activities in four sections (five if you're going for Gold) - Volunteering, Physical, Skills, Expedition and for Gold, a Residential.

  

You'll find yourself helping people or the community, getting fitter, developing skills, going on an expedition and taking part in a residential activity (Gold only).

 

The best bit is - you get to choose what you do!

Your programme can be full of activities and projects that get you buzzing, and along the way you’ll pick up experiences, friends and talents that will stay with you for the rest of your life.
