Project ImpACT volunteering hours can count towards the Duke of Edinburgh Award and others.
The Duke of Edinburgh Award has inspired and transformed the lives of millions of young people from all walks of life. From volunteering to physical activities, life skills to expeditions, achieving a DofE Award is a passport to a brighter future, valued by employers and universities.
There are three Award levels, see below for the Volunteering section
Bronze - for those aged 14+ years (three months weekly volunteering totaling 12 hours, or 12 hours over five-six months)
Silver - for those aged 15+ years (six months weekly volunteering totaling 24 hours, or 24 hours over an extended period)
Gold - for those aged 16+ years (twelve months weekly volunteering totaling 48 hours, or 48 hours over an extended period)
If you didn't do Silver, you must undertake a further 6 months in either the Volunteering or the longer of the Physical or Skills sections.
