The concept of the Award is one of individual challenge. It offers young people a balanced, non-competitive programme of voluntary activities which encourages personal discovery and growth, self-reliance, perseverance, and responsibility. It equips them with life skills to make a difference to themselves, their communities, and to the world.
The Award operates in all ten provinces and three territories of Canada. Each area of the country is organized into regional divisions. On the local level our regional divisions receive support from many small businesses, legions, service clubs and individuals, who are looking for a way to give back to the community. Offering support on the local level is very rewarding. You see first-hand how your support is giving local youth the opportunity to challenge themselves and live the achievement of The Duke of Edinburgh’s Award.
As a supporter, your donation provides Canadian youth the opportunity to face new experiences, develop confidence and create healthy and active individuals through their participation in the Award Programme.
If you are interested in learning more about how you can support the Award Programme, please contact your local office or if you would like more information on becoming an Ontario sponsor please contact the National Office or email email@example.com.
Annual Giving provides The Duke of Edinburgh's Award with the funds required to ensure that all young people across the Province, regardless of social, economic or geographical background, have the opportunity to participate in the Programme. It is thanks to the on-going generosity of corporate and private donors, foundations and service organizations,
that the Award is able to provide the necessary support to the hard to serve and hard-to-reach communities, ensuring that leaders and volunteers are well trained, who in turn can support participants as they set their own goals and work towards achieving them in a safe and supportive environment.
