Duke of Edinburgh’s International Award Barbados
The Duke of Edinburgh’s International Award is a global framework for non-formal education and learning, which challenges young people to discover their potential and find their purpose, passion and place in the world. It offers youth aged 14-24 years old the opportunity to earn three levels of awards: bronze, silver and gold. The awards are achieved by regular activity in Voluntary service, Skills, Physical Recreation and Adventurous Journey. Participants of the Award benefit from improved self-confidence and team working abilities.
In Barbados the Award is delivered through dedicated volunteers to youth. In addition to guiding youth through their awards volunteers are needed for other activities such as fundraising, promotion the award to the public, quality assurance, digital communications, supporting the admin staff at the office and other activities.
