Project Description

DofE Silver
  • When: 4 April from 11am and 5 April 2020 from 11am

  • Location: Online! Join us on the VICTA UK Facebook page:

  • Cost: Free

This weekend was due to be the Training and Preparation Weekend for our Duke of Edinburgh’s Award participants. Rather than miss out completely, we thought we could get everyone thinking about how you are preparing, or would like to prepare, for the Duke of Edinburgh’s Award at home right now.

On Saturday, we would like to give you the opportunity to discuss amongst yourselves about volunteering for DofE, enabling you to swap ideas on what you are all up to at home. And to start you off, don’t miss the short video introduction from John.

You can also talk about the importance of keeping fit ahead of the expedition, letting you share ideas about physical activity and what you can sensibly do at home.

Sunday’s video introduction by John will focus on the skills and the expedition section. The best bit!
