What is it?
DofE is a programme of activities open to anyone aged 14 to 24. It's not about competition - it's about helping you develop as a whole person. There are three levels of the Award - Bronze, Silver and Gold - and for each level you need to undertake four sections: volunteering, physical, skills-development and an expedition. For the Gold level you also need to take part in a residential event.
This fits in closely with many other awards and qualifications available to Girlguiding members, particularly the Queen's Guide award, and so Girlguiding works with DofE so our members can complete the challenge as part of guiding.
