Giving young people the best possible start. Confidence, resilience, team working – just some of the skills young people get through their DofE
Many of the young people Cumbria Youth Alliance supports are not the usual Duke of Edinburgh participants - we focus on the harder to help and harder to reach young people who will benefit most from undertaking the award. Many are facing challenging times in school or as they move towards independent living and adulthood.
Often they have multiple and complex issues to overcome before they can go on and achieve their award. Despite the barriers we firmly believe that all young people have potential - they just need to be in the right place with the right level of support to enable them to fulfil that potential.
