Continuing a legacy

Prince Philip was a champion of the infinite potential of young people and a pioneer in non-formal education and learning. As we mark his 100th year, the Award family is determined to ensure that The Duke’s vision can continue and grow for many years to come.

This year, we launch our ‘Founder’s 100’ campaign to help us to achieve that. Over the next three years, we plan to raise in excess of £25 million, to, amongst other things, help enable more than two million additional young people to start their Award journey, particularly those from at risk and marginalised backgrounds.

The Award and the Foundation

The Duke of Edinburgh's International Award is a non-formal education and learning framework operating in more than 130 countries and territories around the world, through which young people’s achievements outside of academia are recognised and celebrated.

We at The Duke of Edinburgh’s International Award Foundation are the engine that drives and supports the Award's growth, access and impact across the globe.

We are committed to making the Award available to 1% of the youth population by 2023, which is 7.9m young people. This represents a 600% growth on current participation numbers.
