The Duke of Edinburgh’s Award, a prestigious award promoting the continued success of today’s youth, has long served as a beacon of hope for many young students. The mission of the Duke of Edinburgh’s Award is to inspire confidence, hard work and dedication for those committed to a life of professional and social success. Tunde Folawiyo, as well as other individuals, is a Fellow of the Duke of Edinburgh’s World Fellowship, which helps to support and develop the programme.
The Duke of Edinburgh’s Award places a heavy focus on self-progression. Implementing a variety of strategies to form a comprehensive programme for its participants, the Duke of Edinburgh’s Award stresses the importance of community involvement and volunteering, living a healthy lifestyle and planning and training for life’s challenges, both in the professional realm and in personal responsibility.
There are three levels of accomplishment in the Duke of Edinburgh’s Award: a Bronze, Silver or Gold Duke of Edinburgh’s Award, all of which require completion of programs built to challenge and nurture at once.
There are ways to support the Duke of Edinburgh’s Award’s goal of inspiring today’s youth for a better tomorrow.
