Young people today face a wide range of challenges. At The Duke of Edinburgh's International Award, we want to play our part in helping young people to be ready for their world. Non-formal education and the development of skills such as resilience, confidence and communication can help to ensure every young

person can say I AM #WORLDREADY.


#WORLDREADY is about two things – championing non-formal education and championing young people. Both have huge potential and even more, when combined.


Find out more about the importance of non-formal education and hear about the Award in action, from young people around the world

“I believe that every journey beings with a single step. In the beginning the goal might look impossible. Friends and family may discourage but what someone has to do is to ignore their voices and keep moving. At last the goal will be sighted. However, that person is not stronger than the people who used to discourage him or her but the difference is that he or she believed in her or himself.”
