Duke of Edinburgh's Award Jersey
Membership Number: AJC97
The DofE Jersey committee aims to promote the Duke of Edinburgh’s Award locally and to support the various groups licenced independently to deliver the Award throughout the Island. Over 600 young people can be involved in the Award at any one time in Jersey and are able to participate through belonging to organised groups, schools, youth clubs or the Island Award Centre. Young people can become involved in the Award from the age of 14 and are able to continue to work towards their goals until they are 25.
There are three Award levels: Bronze, Silver and Gold; within each section participants are challenged to gain experiences through volunteering to help others, taking part in group expeditions, learning new skills, and undertaking physical activity. At Gold level only, a short stay away from home is also required. Young people undertake the activities in their own time and can tailor their activities whatever their interests and abilities. Participation in the Award is a valuable addition to any CV as it is recognised worldwide.
When young people achieve a gold award, a presentation of their badge is made in Jersey, usually at Government House, and the young person is invited to attend a certificate presentation, normally held at St James's Palace, London.
