What is DofE?

The DofE is a life-changing adventure you don’t want to miss. 


It’s about going the extra mile ­– learning new skills for work and life, getting fitter, helping others, and exploring the countryside.


Millions of young people in the UK have already done their DofE.


Now it’s your turn.
