Duke of Edinburgh's Award Club (UTDEA)

The Duke of Edinburgh’s award is the leading international youth achievement award, which drives and supports global growth. The award gives hundreds of thousands of youth the opportunity to expand their horizons through completing any or all of three levels of the award program, which challenge youth in four areas: youth must develop a skill, contribute to their communities by volunteering, pursue a physical activity, and embark on an overnight adventurous journey. The award is open to youth ages 14-25, and is most often completed in synchronicity with a high school and/or university/college education.

The University of Toronto Duke of Edinburgh’s Award program works with U of T students to assist and support them in completing any or all levels of this award. This includes creating a community through four social events each academic year (and one Executive meeting each month of the academic year), organizing two group hikes and one group camping trip, facilitating sign-off on Physical Recreation and Skill development, and coordinating Community Service and volunteer opportunities throughout campus and the city of Toronto. The University of Toronto Duke of Edinburgh’s Award program is overseen by staff at St. Michael’s College at the University of Toronto as well as several staff members at the Duke of Edinburgh’s Head Office for Upper Canada.

The UTDEA cooperates with several on-campus initiatives to promote student involvement and leadership at the University of Toronto. The UTDEA Executive members are all highly involved at the university, and are all enrolled in full-time academic programs. The goal of this group is to continue to encourage diverse youth achievement within the University of Toronto community.
