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 are piloting a program called the Virtual Award Program (VAP). Participants in the VAP work with trained and vetted Award Leaders remotely to complete the Skills, Service, Physical Recreation and Residential Project Sections. VAP Participants complete their Adventurous Journey with other VAP Participants through an open registration trip with one of our licensed Registered Activity Providers. The VAP does not currently have space for new participants, but we plan to open up this opportunity to additional participants in the near future.

Learn more today!

Please complete the form below to provide your contact information so we can stay in touch about openings for participants in the virtual program. We also invite you to share the information of organizations and/or individuals that might be interested in starting new Award Centers in your area so we can follow up with them.
