You achieve an Award by completing a personal programme of activities in four sections (five if you're going for Gold).
You'll find yourself helping people or the community, getting fitter, developing skills, going on an expedition and taking part in a residential activity (Gold only).
But here's the best bit - you get to choose what you do!
Your programme can be full of activities and projects that get you buzzing. And along the way you'll pick up experiences, friends and talents that will stay with you for the rest of your life.
Where can you get started?
There are many groups supported by Dumfries & Galloway Council throughout the region. Many are based on schools but there are others based in youth groups. For information on your nearest group, please contact the DofE Support Worker who will put you in touch with your nearest group
