Duke of Edinburgh´s Award Meeting

The Duke of Edinburgh´s Award Programmes is not well know - why, I´m not sure - it´s an amazing thing - but for some odd reason not too many people know About it.

The Award is the brain-child of HRH the Duke of Edinburgh Prince Phillip and started in the UK in the 60´s it spread across the globe quickly coming to Canada shortly after its inception in the UK.

Basically, it´s a youth achievement merit award. You work through set requirements and at the end, having met all of the goals - you achieve the award. Now it even counts for credit in BC High schools. See http://www.goldaward.org for more information.

I worked through the program Back when I was in High school and attained the Gold Award - I´ve remained involved ever since at various levels. Since I´m currently the president of the Gold Award Society in BC (an alumni group) I´m a de facto rep for the Award Board - thus the meeting...

Well, that was rather long winded - but I´ve got my formal explanation through with anyway ;)
