Start your DofE

"It’s amazing what the DofE can do, you can meet new people and stay in contact, make friends for life. It has massively changed my life. I had never really achieved anything and the DofE gave me the chance to achieve something and feel really proud of myself."

Jay Passmore, Gold Award holder

Once you’ve found your nearest DofE centre, you can start planning your DofE programme. Choose from a range of volunteering, physical, skills and expedition activities that will set you up for life.

Perhaps you want to help out at a local youth club or improve your swimming? Learn how to bake or go hiking? Work out what excites you and makes a difference to you and the people around you.
