HRH The Duke of Edinburgh
HRH Prince Philip, The Duke of Edinburgh was a champion of the infinite potential of young people and a pioneer in non-formal education and learning. As we marked his 100th year, the Award family is determined to ensure that The Duke of Edinburgh’s vision can continue and grow for many years to come.
The Award is here to help young people build the skills they need to discover their infinite potential and be ready for the world of today and tomorrow. Through stepping outside their comfort zone and challenging themselves in a range of areas, young people can join millions of Award alumni around the world who have discovered there is more in them than they ever realized.
From the changemakers and the leaders of tomorrow to those who quietly support or pave their own path; every young person has infinite potential. And the Duke of Edinburgh saw the need to foster that, right back in 1956.
