About Us

The Duke of Edinburgh’s International Award empowers young people, ages 14 to 24, to give back to their communities, explore their interests and passions, commit to their health and wellness, and gain an appreciation for the natural environment. With guidance from Award Leaders and assessors, young Canadians are given a supportive, non-competitive youth development platform that deepens self-awareness, builds confidence, and broadens skills and experience to further their growth as active, responsible citizens.

Our Division supports over 5,000 new registrants each year with their journeys to set and achieve goals and to become the best versions of themselves. Find out more about the Award and its phenomenal impacts for young people and your community.
