The Duke of Edinburgh Award is a program meant to encourage youth in Canada to participate in new activities geared towards personal development. It was founded in 1956 by Prince Philip, the Duke of Edinburgh, and is run in 120 countries around the world, including Canada. Students set their own goals and choose their own activities in the four areas of the program: Community Service, Personal Skill Development, Physical Recreation, Adventurous Journey. Upon completion of your goals and activities, you will be recognized for your achievements with a Bronze, Silver or Gold Award. Each of the three Award levels has a set length of time. Aside from the personal challenge and fun of trying new things, the Duke of Edinburgh Award is widely recognized by employers and people involved in education worldwide.
