The Duke of Edinburgh's International Award Program is the leading youth achievement award and a globally recognized resume credential. It encourages young people, 14 - 24, to develop new skills, be physically active, volunteer in the community and  learn about teamwork and leadership through adventurous journeys. Young people work with multiple mentors and activities to increase their sense of adventure and engage in learning outside the classroom. Award holders become part of a prestigious global alumni network. With 1.1 million active participants and millions of alumni from over 130 countries and territories, the Award inspires young people of all backgrounds.

Each Award journey is personalized for each young person, focusing on real-world experiences that build character, resilience, and self-confidence. The Award helps young people to find their purpose, passion, and place in the world. 

One Ocean Scuba students working on The Award will participate in snorkeling and scuba training programs, apply sustainable environmental practices, make a difference in our community and beyond by participating in local efforts that have a global impact.
