The programme is for anyone between the ages of 14 until :24 and is based on non-formal education by the means of learning by experience. In the Czech Republic, more than 230 institutions and more than 5000 pupils and students are taking part.

Who can provide DofE?

The programme can be provided by any elementary or high school, university, non-profit organisation, children's home or any other organisation working with the youth.

What does DofE offer?

How to get involved?

You can also provide DofE at your school or youth organisation. Contact your region manager for more information:

  • get familiar with the programme and  contact your regional manager
  • select suitable people and register them for the DofE training accredited by the Ministry of Education
  • together we will introduce the programme in your institution and help with the recruitment of participants
  • you can start with DofE

Institutions that participate in DofE pay an annual fee for the DofE realization and development, the price depends on the type of organization:

  • Non-profit organizations, children's homes: Free
  • Youth and leisure centers: CZK 4,500
  • State elementary and high schools: CZK 9,500

The fee is always paid for a particular school year. In the case your institution is not able to receive financial support for DofE from your establisher or any other partner organisation (the most common way are the memoranda with regions and towns or private subjects), you can try out the programme during the first year for free, so you can discover the benefits DofE has for your school.
