Welcome to The Duke of Ed National Award Holders Alumni.

Over the past 50 years The Duke of Ed in Australia has had over 700,000 young Australians complete an Award. That’s over 700,000 young people from all walks of life striving to challenge themselves and recognise their potential. The Alumni provides the opportunity for all past Awardees to now reconnect with The Duke of Ed! Donate_$50

“I believe that The Duke of Ed Alumni is a great opportunity for people to keep their finger on the pulse of The Award. Awardees naturally have things in common and having a way for them to keep involved in The Duke of Ed is incredibly exciting. Over the coming years, I think that the alumni has the opportunity to take The Duke of Ed in a variety of new directions.”
