Embark on a transformative journey that will challenge you to step out of your comfort zone and explore the wonders of the world around you. The Duke of Edinburgh’s Hillary Award is a time-tested personal development program designed for young individuals like yourself. Even if your school doesn’t offer a DoE Program, you can complete your award with us, including the two adventurous journeys and training.
Through our engagement with The Award, we prioritize fostering a positive and holistic sense of self-worth among our youth. Our aim is to encourage participants to embrace their mental, social, physical, and spiritual well-being. We take our adventurers off the grid, equipping them with essential hard skills that ensure their safety in the future while building their confidence.
If you’re between 14 to 24, you are eligible to take part in the Award program. The program offers three progressive levels leading to the coveted Bronze, Silver, or Gold Award upon successful completion.
To achieve the award, participants are required to complete four sections at each level, including voluntary service, skills, physical recreation, and adventurous journey. At the Gold level, an additional residential project is completed, adding even more depth to the experience.
