Volunteering section

“Volunteering has been my favourite part of the DofE and has given me a purpose.” – Kyle, Bronze and Silver Award holder

Volunteering is all about making a difference to other people’s lives. Perhaps you’re interested in animals or conservation? Or you might like to work with older people or raise money for a cause that means a lot to you? From teaching children cyber safety to starting a local recycling campaign, the Volunteering section of your DofE enables you to give your time to help others and change things for the better.

You’ll really put your heart into volunteering through your DofE. Like Kyle, many find this section the most rewarding and continue to volunteer long after achieving a DofE Award.
