A Participants Story

One of YouthAdvance’s recent Gold Awardees wrote in his report, “tell people to forget their phones and life at home and live in the moment to learn as much as possible and have fun”. A Bronze participant said “I have learnt that Duke of Ed is one of the best experiences that I have participated in throughout my life, not only meeting new people, gaining a greater amount of knowledge through nature, technology, and essential life skills”.

YouthAdvance of course fully supports these statements – going forth, get out there and see this big beautiful world. Challenge yourself to do new things and pursue new heights and learn skills and things about yourself along the way.

We look forward to meeting you at the Parent Evening.
