Founded by Prince Philip, the Duke of Edinburgh, the awards recognize adolescents and young adults for completing a series of self-improvement exercises modeled on Kurt Hahn’s solution to the “Six Declines of Modern Youth”. The programmes are at three progressive levels, which, if successfully completed, lead to a Bronze, Silver or Gold Duke of Edinburgh’s Award. The programme aims to instill the spirit of voluntarism, a sound physical education as well as build up your child’s interpersonal skill sets.
