Do the DofE Award with Berkshire Youth

30 September 2021

Berkshire Youth currently has 168 young people enrolled on their DofE Award.

Doing the DofE Award is a brilliant way for young people to discover just how much they are capable of. It gives young people the chance to make new friends, follow their passions, learn new skills and make a difference in our community. Achieving a DofE Award is a great way to impress employers too. And it helps young people to see themselves differently and gain a new level of confidence.

The DofE is non-competitive and powerful way for every young person to build belief in themselves, whatever their background, interests and abilities.

There are three levels of DofE Award – Bronze, Silver and Gold. To achieve their Award, your young person will need to complete four sections – Volunteering, Physical, Skills and the Expedition [add Residential for Gold].

If you are interested in finding out more about the DofE Award with Berkshire Youth, please email us.
