60 Years - 1963-2023

Some 60 years ago, The Duke of Edinburgh’s Award, as it was then called, was introduced to Barbados. Since then, thousands of Participants have participated in the Award and gained success at the Bronze, Silver and Gold levels, and many of whom have gone on to make an impact on the local and international community. 


Over that time, the Award has consistently evolved to meet the needs of the current generation, providing avenues for their personal development into well-rounded, civic-minded individuals, regardless of race, sex, class or background. From #challengingyoungpeopleeverywhere, to making them #worldready and helping them #discoverinfinitepotential, the Award continues to play a role in developing young people.


As we continue the evolution of the Award, let us take this time to thank all those who contributed to making the Award what it is, giving their time, talents, or finances over the years.


We look forward to continued successes in the future.
