DofE - Young People

The adventure starts here

To get started in DofE you need to be linked with a DofE Centre. This can be in the form of e.g. a school, college or youth centre. The DofE Leaders at the DofE Centre will be able to advise you which level is suitable for you and equip you for your DofE Journey.

This includes all Operating Authorities within Hampshire, not just those under the Hampshire County Council Licence.

Completing your award

Once you have filled in your eDofE award online and uploaded evidence into each section and the expedition plans, then you will need to submit each section and then the full award to your DofE Leader for approval.

Once they are happy with your submission, your DofE Leader will forward to the DofE County Office for final approval and you will be awarded your Bronze, Silver or Gold.

(Gold Awards involve an additional step in approval via the DofE South-East regional office).

You will now be able to create your Achievement Pack!

Bronze and Silver award holders have the opportunity to be awarded your Certificate at one of the County's presentations. Gold Award Holders often get a invite to one of the County presentations, but are also invited to one of the National presentations.
