how will participating benefit you?

Gain a highly respected youth achievement award through our DoE programme, by helping others, improving your fitness, gaining skills and exploring the countryside.

Offered at three levels, Bronze, Silver and Gold which vary according their level of challenges to complete and how stretching the activities are. Each level includes different sections such as volunteering, physical activity and practical skills. There’s also an expedition element which requires you to take part in an outdoor trek over a number of days.


Many of the hundreds of thousands of young people who take part in the DoE say how much is has changed their life. You will gain skills, confidence and an edge over others when you apply for university or jobs as you will have developed communication skills, commitment, leadership and teamwork. Throughout the DoE journey you’ll have had the opportunity to make a difference to your community and lives of others, make new friends, become fitter and healthy and create lasting memories
