A DofE programme is a real adventure from beginning to end; it doesn't matter who you are or where you're from. You just need to be aged between 14 and 24 and realise there's more to life than sitting on a sofa.  If you have the motivation to develop your skills, physical ability, teamwork and by helping the local community in a non competitive way then this is the scheme for you.


Since 2014 the Stonehaven Open Award Group has been offering young people between the ages of 14 and 24 the opportunity to do their Duke of Edinburgh award.  If you are interested in participating or volunteering with the group please browse the website and contact us for more information.
