About The Duke of Edinburgh's Award Alberta Northwest Territories & Nunavut Division
The Duke of Edinburgh’s Award is a challenge programme open to any young person between the ages of 14 – 25 encouraging personal development and community involvement, as participants set their own goals and recognize their achievements in the areas of Community Service, Personal Skill Development, Physical Recreation and outdoor Adventure. The Award has three levels, Bronze, Silver and Gold all of which involve comprehensive development, self-training and personal achievement, and is based upon individual effort and improvement. Your support will enable us to develop and sustain the programme in hard to reach and hard to serve youth communities, in turn providing participants with the support they need to realize their own goals and achievements.
What People Are Saying
" For me the most important benefit of all is how much I have learnt about myself as the Gold Award has taught me a lot about focus, commitment and responsibility"
"School taught me how to study, but The Award Programme has taught me how to live."
"By doing The Award I have learnt so much more than I would have ever thought possible and I now have my own identity and more self-confidence to push myself further. I would do the Award again if I could!"
"Award participants in our correctional centres tend not to recommit crimes. Through the Programme, they start dreaming, setting goals and having a vision for their own lives again."
— Sharene, Award Leader
"I had never really volunteered before. Volunteering has become a huge part of my life since, and I really learned the importance of giving back to others."
