So you’ve had an amazing time achieving your Gold Award and now you're sad it’s all over? Wondering what to do with all the spare time on your hands? You know the adventure doesn’t have to stop here!
DofE programmes are run by Leaders, many of whom are volunteers. People who enjoy helping others achieve. Individuals who, in many cases, achieved Awards themselves – people like you!
So why not share your experience and enthusiasm with others? There are a variety of ways to get involved:
Life after DofE
Help us continue to inspire and motivate today’s young people in the Bailiwick and support the continued development of the Duke of Edinburgh Award within the Islands.
Become an Assessor
In the Expedition section, qualifying expeditions must be assessed by a competent adult who is approved by the Licensed Organisation and accredited by the DofE through the Expedition Assessor Accreditation Scheme..
Become a Leader
Our Leaders are responsible for a DofE group. You'll lead, guide, inspire and encourage young people, agree their programme choices and approve their progress and pictures in eDofE.
Become a Supervisor
Supervisors are people with a good understanding of a participant's chosen activity. You'll help them set their goals and regularly meet with the young person to check on their progress, address any potential issues and adjust goals..
Become a Volunteer
Adults who can spare some time to help our DofE Leaders run a group can be a volunteer. You may give general support, i.e. admin, help run one section or give specific training.
