The Duke of Ed Overview
Muscular Dystrophy NSW is the first disability service provider in Australia to become a National Licensed Operator of The Duke of Edinburgh’s Award – which is an internationally recognised program inviting people of all abilities and cultural backgrounds to dig deep and achieve! Many thanks to ADHC for their continued support of this innovative initiative.
The Duke of Edinburgh’s Award is an enriching program that invites young people aged between 14 and 25 years to participate in a non-competitive program of self-directed activities. Participants can choose to do their Bronze, Silver or Gold Award, and each level requires that they undertake an activity of their choice in each of the four Sections of Skill, Physical Recreation, Volunteering and Adventurous Journey. They participate on a regular basis over a set period of time for each Section and take ownership of as much of the planning, decision making and record keeping as possible.
