Duke of Edinburgh

Founded by Prince Philip, the Duke of Edinburgh Award is a self-development, non-competitive, voluntary program for young people aged 14-25 which encourages the development of life skills, initiative, personal discovery, self-reliance, perseverance, leadership, responsibility to oneself, and service to community. Participants complete Bronze, Silver and Gold levels through goals related to Community Service, Skill Development, Physical Recreation and Adventurous Journey.

The Award has three levels: Bronze, Silver and Gold, each with an increasing degree of commitment. Within each level there are four sections: Service, Expeditions, Skills and Physical Recreation.

LCC is the most active school in Quebec in the Duke of Edinburgh’s Award program and, as of August 2020, 1,121 bronze, 679 silver and 388 gold awards had been earned by LCC students and recent alumni.
