The Duke of Edinburgh’s Award Scotland

The Duke of Edinburgh’s Award Scotland

  • Work with the #iwill team on a call to action the extra adult volunteers who would be needed to join our partner organisations in order to support that volume of participants.
  • Grow the availability of the DofE programme so that every young person who wants to do their DofE has the opportunity to take part.
  • We are growing the number of centres offering The Duke of Edinburgh’s Award (DofE) year on year, and by 2020 we aim to offer the DofE in every learning community in Scotland. By increasing the number of opportunities for young people to do their DofE, more young people take part in social action through their Volunteering section.
  • Nearly 21,000 young people started a DofE programme in Scotland in 2015/16 and they contributed nearly 500,000 hours of volunteering as part of their programme.

We’ve just pledged to the #iwill campaign recently – watch this space for updates on our progress


Quote from Charlotte Hill, CEO at Step Up To Serve
“The #iwill campaign is driven by leaders from across society who are committed to making youth social action a normal part of growing up in the UK.
We know that young people want to play an active part in improving their communities, and that in doing so, they develop their own skills for work and life.
Over 700 cross-sector organisations so far have pledged to support youth social action, and say #iwill. What will you do?”
