The Duke of Edinburgh's International Award is an excellent program that equips young people for life and work. At Youthworks we have been facilitating Christian Outdoor Education programs for over 30 years. The Adventurous Journey section of the Duke of Edinburgh's International Award is just one of the great ways in which our programs can help young adventurers grow in their understanding of God, themselves, and the world around us.
Partner with our adventure experts
For many schools, successfully planning and delivering an Adventurous Journey is simply too great a challenge in the midst of a busy teaching schedule. By partnering with Youthworks, you can have access to all our outdoors experiences, including qualified instructors, supervisors and quality outdoor equipment to hire for the trip. We ensure that your journey is delivered in a suitable location for the needs and outcomes of your students.
Your journey will be facilitated by fully qualified and professional Christian Outdoor Educators who are passionate about using adventures in creation to provide life changing experiences for young people. Each journey is planned and delivered in accordance with current industry standards and reviewed by industry leading risk management processes.
You will be supported by the best resources, equipment and logistics including real-time satellite monitoring and communications systems operated by our expert expedition coordinators.
Youthworks will do all of the risk management for the trip.
This will include:
Risk Management Plans of the route, fully qualified instructor, satellite communications and tracking, expedition coordinators, wilderness first aid kit, and water purification (if needed).
Reflection & Debrief
Youthworks seeks to be exceptional in delivering outdoor education and one of our points of difference is that, while we run high-quality, professional outdoor education programs, every single guide at Youthworks COE strives to deliver an expedition where learning outcomes are seized upon and debriefed.
On a Duke of Ed trip our guides are there to ensure the safety of the group and will let the students lead the trip, only stepping in if they are going to do something dangerous. At night or in the morning we debrief the day so that students are better prepared to reflect on their expedition and complete their Duke of Ed requirements to the best
of their ability.
