The Duke of Edinburgh's International Award is an exciting international youth development program.
Any young person between the age of 14 and 25 can take part in this program. It is an exciting opportunity that allows you to choose your own activities and set your own goals, whilst challenging yourself in areas of physical recreation, skill, service and outdoor activities.
The Bridge Award is also available. This award is open to young people aged between 11 and a half and 25 years. It builds confidence and resilience and is a great introduction to the Bronze level of The Duke of Edinburgh's International Award (from 14 years).
Award Units are a group or organisation licensed by the Queensland Government to deliver The Duke of Edinburgh's International Award and the Bridge Award in Queensland. Find out more information about Award Units (including how to become an Award Unit) on the Queensland Government website .
There are also volunteering opportunities available with The Duke of Edinburgh's International Award. This is a great opportunity if you enjoy interacting with young people and other volunteers.
