What is The Duke of Edinburgh International Award (DofE)?
DofE is a program for young people that gives them an opportunity to challenge themselves through different unformal activities: volunteering, physical recreation, gaining new skills and outdoor activities. This learning process is highly structured and mentored by trained award leaders, supervisors and hike assessors. Except personal development, the participants are additionally motivated with a badge from British Embassy, which gives this program and its participants extra value and recognition.
