The Duke of Edinburgh’s International Award Malaysia drives and supports the growth of young people in Malaysia, so more young people can undertake the world’s leading youth achievement taward..
Working through with all our award units, NGO, Schools, Prison Department, Higher learning institutions and Corporate Sector, we are creating new ways and places for young people to do the Award, using innovative online tools. We work together with the foundation to increase global awareness of the value of non-formal education. This in turn creates demand for the Award, which is one way that young people’s development outside the classroom can be recognized tconsistently in Malaysia.
Since the Award’s launch nearly 60 years ago, millions of young people have participated in the Award, with millions more benefitting from its impact in communities around the world. Malaysia has started this award program 16 years ago and looking forward to touch lives of all the young people in Malaysia. By creating opportunities for young people to develop skills, get physically active, give service and experience adventure, the Award can play a critical role in their development outside the classroom. It also allows their achievement to be consistently recognized worldwide, giving young people unique international accreditation of their experiences.
Our ambition is that every young person aged 14 to 24 in the world should have the opportunity to participate in the Award.
Each young person who takes part in the Award learns a skill, improves their physical well being, volunteers in their community and experiences a team adventure in a new environment. All Participants are supported by a network of adult Award Leaders, Assessors, Supervisors, and mentors.
Today over 140 countries have adopted The Duke of Edinburgh’s International Award program and more than 8 million young people have participated worldwide. Locally over 300,000 young people have completed the Award in Malaysia in the past 16 years, with on average 20,000 very diverse participants annually working towards achieving an Award.
