THE DUKE OF EDINBURGH'S AWARD

Description

The Duke of Edinburgh’s Award is the world’s leading achievement award for young people.

We aim to create a world where young people can reach their full potential whatever their circumstances. Our ethos is to enable every young person of every background to do their DofE and succeed, regardless of any barriers. We provide a balanced programme of activities that develops the whole person – mind, body and soul – in an environment of social interaction and teamworking. Young people progress through three levels of DofE programmes to achieve a Bronze, Silver or Gold Award. Taking part builds confidence and develops self-esteem. It requires persistence, commitment and has a lasting impact on the attitudes and outlook of all young people who do their DofE. Our participants are aged between 14 and 24.

The Duke of Edinburgh’s Award is delivered under special licence by over 500 partners (Licenced Organisations). Our partners support over 10,000 DofE centres including youth clubs, voluntary organisations, schools, colleges, Young Offenders Institutions and businesses to run DofE programmes and accredit their young people.

Description

Community Centred Conservation (C3) is a dynamic and expanding grassroots non-profit organisation focusing on small-scale environmental research and education projects that lead to direct benefits for local communities through the sustainable use of the natural environment. These benefits arise from a greater understanding of environmental issues that affect communities and their natural resources. By combining the results of biological research with local knowledge we can achieve a fuller understanding of contemporary environmental issues. Also, by providing opportunities for local people to develop and participate in these projects, through close consultation and training in the community, we use an integrated approach to ensure sustainability of conservation efforts at the grassroots level.
