How can you start implementing the programme?
To implement the program in your club, college, university or organization, contact the Award National Authority.
A series of steps will be taken:
- Issuing a program delivery license that determines how to work and gives you the right to use the brand,
- Creating a team of adult volunteers, members of the licensed institution,
- Attending the Award Leader training course, which aims to train adults to mentor and support future young participants,
- Starting the program.
Throughout the course of the programme, the organization is supported, informed and coordinated by The Duke of Edinburgh’s International Award Romania Foundation.
Young people interact with more adults, behind each participant being an Award Leader who supports and motivates them, an activity instructor who helps them achieve their goals and others who recognize their effort at the Award Ceremony.

All organizations implementing The Duke of Edinburgh’s International Award Romania programme are licensed under a Licensing Agreement that provides the status of Operational Authority or Award Operational Unit.
Each Award Operational Unit respects the terms of the contract and implicitly the international quality standards.
For more details, please contact the Award National Authority.
Have you reached the enrolment age limit, but you still want to get involved in the program?
The DofE Award Romania program is based on the support of hundreds of adult volunteers. Without them, the program would have not reached the young people from Romania or millions of young people from all over the world.
Regardless of your age, you can give some of your time for Award, choosing to direct young people on a unique journey.
If you work in a school or a youth organization, you can be the one starting the program and licensing the institution as an Award Operational Authority.
The functions that are occupied by adult volunteers in the program are the following:
- Award Operational Authority Coordinator
- Award Leader
- Activity Instructor
- Supervisor in the Adventure section
- Evaluator within the Adventure section
- Trainer of Award Leaders.
