Duke of Edinburgh

A globally-recognized program that encourages personal discovery and growth, self-reliance, perseverance, and responsibility to self and community.

Rosseau Lake College has been celebrating student success in the Duke of Edinburgh Award program since 1977.

The Duke of Edinburgh Award is a global non-formal, student-driven program that takes commitment, a spirit of adventure, making choices, setting goals, and perseverance in achieving them. It empowers young people to get active in their communities and to set goals to enrich their own lives.

By working towards specific benchmarks in the areas of Physical Recreation, Skills, Community Service and Adventurous Journeys, students will grow their skills and abilities across many fields. 

Students can opt into this program at any point and receive support from the Award Leaders at RLC. For more information, please visit the Duke of Edinburgh Program’s website: https://www.dukeofed.org/
