Duke of Edinburgh Inverclyde in Duke of Edinburgh

Many young people find achieving a DofE Award life-changing. A fun adventure and major challenge, three progressive Award levels (Bronze, Silver and Gold) and a wide range of activities offer endless possibilities to anyone aged 14 to 24. Millions of young people in the UK have already taken part in the world’s leading youth achievement award – pushing personal boundaries, gaining new skills and enhancing their CVs and university applications. Time to get involved and go the extra mile?

The benefits of achieving a DofE Award at any level are endless.  It’s difficult to list them all but you should definitely know how much fun you’ll have, how pushing yourself to do new things will help you to grow in confidence and develop useful skills. Why meeting new people will inspire you and lead to lasting friendships. And how a DofE Award can give you the edge when you apply for college, university or a job.

Put simply, the DofE is about helping you along the path to a productive and prosperous future. As many of our participants say, it’s life-changing!  Inverclyde DofE offers free expeditions to those wishing to complete their award.
