Duke of Edinburgh’s Award

The Duke of Edinburgh’s Award is a world wide program to encourage young adults aged 14 to 25 to challenge and improve themselves with more than 15,000 young Canadians participating.  While this program is run world wide and is not affiliated with the Royal Canadian Amy Cadets, like most corps, 2824 C.O.P.S strongly supports the Duke of Edinburgh’s Award and encourage all cadets to participate in the program.

The program encourages teens and young adults to set personal goals and work to achieve them.  It also encourages qualities such as responsibility, and the ability to plan and organize.  This is a non-competitive award and is instead based on self motivation allowing each cadet to progress at their own pace and setting no limits on how many cadets can achieve the award.  The criterion for achieving an award are designed to allow it to be adapted for each participant and to encourage individual improvement.  In this way, even if cadets do not achieve the award, they can learn, develop and have fun along the way.

There are three award levels:

  • Bronze – minimum start age of 14
  • Silver – minimum start age of 15
  • Gold –  minimum start age of 16

Please contact Capt. Dearing for more information.
