Continuing a legacy

Prince Philip was a champion of the infinite potential of young people and a pioneer in non-formal education and learning. Over 65+ years his Award has empowered millions of young people to discover there is more in them than they ever realised, all whilst developing skills such as resilience, adaptability, leadership, agency and problem solving.

To mark his 100th year, the international Award family launched the ‘Founder’s 100’ campaign, to help ensure that The Duke’s vision can continue and grow for many years to come. We are working to raise in excess of £25 million by the end of 2023, to help enable more than two million additional young people to start their Award journey, particularly those from at risk and marginalised backgrounds.
