Why to join

8 million young people from 140 countries of the world have participated in the DofE Award. This was made possible thanks to the thousands of schools and organizations that provide the participants with the necessary support.

Any organization working with children and the youth (e.g. a school, youth club, sports or tourist club, non-profit organization) can become an Award Unit and this way get the programme to the young people right in their organization or region.
