Duke of Edinburgh Award build character and tenacity through fun and exciting initiatives.

IteratEd is proud to support the Duke of Edinburgh Award as volunteers, program leaders and participant mentors.

As a volunteer District Field Officer, our Founding Partner, W. Bradley Gooderham, is dedicated to enlisting as many award participants as possible and representing the Duke of Edinburgh Award in the community.

We at IteratEd can assist in the registration and help to answer many of the questions that families and students have.  The Award is a life changing process of growth and exposure to new people and experiences.   It is open without exception to all youth between 14 and 25.   Check it out, you will be glad you did.

Visit the Bronze Level, Silver Level, and Gold Level pages for information on how we can facilitate the award progression.

“The Award Concept is one of individual challenge. It presents to young people a balanced, non-competitive programme of voluntary activities which encourages personal discovery and growth, self-reliance, perseverance, responsibility to themselves, and service to their community.”

- Duke of Edinburgh Award International Declaration

About The Award

The Award is a non-competitive programme in which participants set and achieve personal goals for community service, skills, fitness, and adventure. It is a great way to explore new interests and try new challenges you might not have done otherwise, and even stretch your ‘comfort zone’. The Award is open to all young Canadians age 14 yrs to 24 yrs old, and has 3 levels:

  • Bronze (for ages 14 yrs and up)
  • Silver (for ages 15 yrs and up)
  • Gold (for ages 16 yrs and up)

Participants can expect to spend at least 6 months completing the Bronze level, and a year or more on Silver or Gold, depending on whether the participant registers as a direct entry or continues from one level to the next. You must complete your Award before your 25th birthday.

Read more about Time Requirements here, or download this Summary and Conditions chart as a one-page reference for requirements of Bronze, Silver, and Gold.

The Duke of Edinburgh’s Award challenges you to set and accomplish personal goals in 4 or 5 different areas:

  • Service
  • Skill
  • Physical Recreation
  • Adventurous Journey
  • Residential Project (for Gold Level only)

These components may be completed simultaneously or one at a time. As a result, the total amount of time required to complete The Award will be slightly different for each participant.

Award achievers receive a pin and certificate to mark their achievements, and may be able to attend a ceremony within their Province or Territory (depending on Award level and ceremony availability). Gold Award ceremonies are only presided over by the Governor-General of Canada, or by a member of the Royal Family.

The Duke of Edinburgh Award has a long and prestigious history in Canada.  Although the times have changed and the world is very different, the ideals of the Award and the benefits that it offers are as valuable now as they were 50 years ago.
