Duke of Edinburgh Bronze Practice 1 - Great North Walk

Monte Sant' Angelo Mercy College

PROGRAM OVERVIEW

The Duke of Edinburgh Award is about individual challenge, variety of activity, duration, support and team work and recognition. As every individual is different, so too are the challenges that young people undertake to achieve their Award. With guidance from their Award Leader, activity Assessor or other Award volunteers, each young person is encouraged to look at themselves, their interests, abilities, and ambitions, then set themselves challenges in the four different Sections of the Award (Voluntary Service, Skill, Physical Recreation and Adventurous Journey).
