The Award is built by the young people themselves, depending on their own interests and activities.

It is split into 4 sections at Bronze and Silver Level and 5 sections at Gold Level.

Each section has equal merit and the whole award cannot be gained without completing all the sections.

Young people must take part in a Volunteering activity, a Physical activity, a Skill activity and an Expedition.

At Gold a Residential experience is also a requirement.

Many activities that young people already do can be used to help them to gain their DofE Award, e.g. Music lessons = Skill, football club = Physical or helping out at cubs = Volunteering.
