The Duke of Edinburgh's International Award Czech Republic (DofE) is an educational program that supports young people in long-term development in more than 130 countries around the world. He strives to give everyone a chance to be #WorldReadythus ready for the challenges of the modern world.

The program is designed for everyone between the ages of 14 and 24 and is based on non-formal education, in the form of experiential pedagogy. There are now over 230 institutions and more than 5,000 pupils and students in the Czech Republic.

Who can provide DofE?

The program can be provided by primary and secondary school, university, non-profit organization, children's home, sports club, leisure center, town and other institutions working with youth.

What does DofE bring?

How to get involved?

You can also provide DofE at your school or organization working with young people. Contact your region manager for more information:

  • get acquainted with the program and  contact your regional manager
  • select suitable persons and register them for DofE training accredited by the Ministry of Education
  • together we will present the program in your institution and help with the recruitment of participants
  • the DofE program can begin for you

Institutions which participate in DofE pay the yearly fee for the DofE realization and development, the amount of fee depends on the type of organization:

  • Non-profit organizations, children's homes: Free
  • Domy dětí a mládeže, střediska volného času: 4 500 Kč
  • Státní (veřejné) střední a základní školy: 9 500 Kč
  • Soukromé školy: 17 500 Kč

The fee is always paid for a particular year. In case your institution is not able to receive a financial support for DofE from your establisher or any other partner organization (the most common are memoranda with regions and cities or with private subjects), you can choose to provide the programme for free during the first year. This way, you can get to know the benefits of the programme for your school. Our regional managers are more than happy to help you (more information in the Contact section).
