Who is eligible?
Anyone aged between 14 and 24.
What is involved?
Because every young person chooses what they want to do, there is no such thing as 'TheDofE programme' – instead there are DofE programmes. When young people are taking part, they are doing a DofE programme - each DofE programme is personal to the individual and there is no such thing as the DofE programme.
A Bronze DofE programme has 4 sections:
|Volunteering||see Programme ideas for suggestions|
|Physical||see Programme ideas and Planner for suggestions|
|Skills||see Programme ideas for suggestions|
|Expedition||see 20 conditions for conditions|
- You must do a minimum of 3 months activity for each of the Volunteering, Physical, and Skills sections.
- You must plan, train for, and do a 2 day (1 night) Expedition.
