The Duke of Edinburgh Award is about challenging young people to find their purpose, passion and place in the world to become #WORLDREADY.

Open to young people between 14-24, this is your opportunity to achieve amazing things with the support of MDNSW.

As a Participant in the Award you:

  • Are equipped and empowered to achieve your personal best
  • Learn to take responsibility for your goals and choices
  • Become connected to and actively engaged within your immediate community
  • Make a real difference to society through your positive contributions and involvement
  • Learn to persevere and overcome barriers to success
  • Learn important life skills

To achieve an Award, each young person must learn a skill, improve their physical well being, volunteer in their community and experience a team adventure in a new environment.

We will be holding an info session to explain a bit about how the Award operates and to answer your questions on Wednesday, 9 March at 5pm on Zoom. RSVP to Laura Howard via email at laura.howard@mdnsw.org.au or on 02 8985 9857 or join via Zoom using this link.
