The Duke of Edinburgh’s International Award is available in more than 140 countries and territories around the world. In each and every country we rely on volunteers to help deliver the Award and we’re always keen to welcome more individuals who would like to help.

You don’t need to be an Award holder yourself to volunteer. From Award Leaders to mini-bus drivers, there are a huge number of opportunities on offer in different countries around the world.

Award Leaders play one of the most important roles in the Award, delivering a life changing experience for young people. The support provided by these adult mentors is vital in helping a young person to successfully complete their Award and to ensure they have the best experience possible. 

For almost 60 years, hundreds of thousands of people around the world have developed new skills volunteering for the Award. If you’d like to join them please contact the Award near you.
