There are no short cuts in the DofE programme, no cushioning the discomfort at times, no one else to show up when the going gets tough. It takes grit, perseverance and often a good dose of humour! However, the rewards are high! Along the way passions are discovered, talents unlocked, new friendships made and more than anything a discovery that if you can achieve this, then what else is possible?
What better investment can there be, than this, to equip our young people for the future?
