Duke of Edinburgh

  • This is an external program/activity (not managed by the Royal Canadian Air Cadet program).
  • The Duke of Edinburgh’s Award, known internationally as The International Award for Young People, was founded by His Royal Highness The Duke of Edinburgh in Great Britain in 1956
  • It is designed to help young people develop a sense of responsibility in themselves and their community by expanding their horizons
  • The Award has evolved into one of the most comprehensive individual development, self-training and personal achievement programmes in the world.
  • The Air Cadet Program offers many components that also satisfy the requirements for reaching a certain standard of the Duke of Edinburgh Program, and cadets are highly recommended to take advantage of that.
