About Us

The Duke of Edinburgh’s International Award is a global non-formal education framework which operates in more than 130 countries and territories, helping to inspire young people to dream big, celebrate their achievements, and make a difference in their world. Through developing transferable skills, increasing their fitness levels, cultivating a sense of adventure, and volunteering in their community, the Award helps young people to find their purpose, passion, and place in the world. Founded by His Royal Highness, The Prince Philip, Duke of Edinburgh in 1956, the Award has inspired millions of young people to transform their lives for over 63 years.

There are 1.3 million young people currently completing their own unique program throughout the world, via hundreds of thousands of youth-focused Award Units, including schools, colleges and universities, youth organizations, youth offender institutions, and the Virtual Award Program. Though the Award only recently came to the United States, it continues to grow as it offers a truly global opportunity for young Americans to develop a customized set of goal-oriented skill development and physical recreation activities, while making an impact on their communities through service.
