Earning The Duke of Edinburgh’s International Award USA

Whenever possible, we connect young people to a local Award Center to begin their Award. When no local program is available, we help to identify locations that may be interested in becoming new Award Centers and delivering the Award. We suggest that you consider sharing this opportunity with others at your school, after-school program or other organization who may be able to help start an Award Center in your area. Award programs can be located in schools, faith-based organizations, youth clubs, Scouting Councils and non-profit organizations. Interested individuals can be trained to run an Award group at their organization.

Virtual Award Program

To further expand our geographic service area, we offer the virtual Open Award Center (OAC). Participants in the OAC work with trained and vetted Award Leaders remotely to complete the Skills, Service, Physical Recreation, and Residential Project Sections. OAC Participants complete their Adventurous Journey with other OAC Participants through an open registration trip with one of our licensed Registered Activity Providers, or independently with the guidance of Award USA. The virtual program has monthly enrollment periods, so please complete the form below and you will be contacted soon to get started!
