Duke of Edinburgh
The International Award for Young People, Nigeria, is presented by Nobelhouse College at three levels with pride. The level of dedication required increases with each level.
The Duke of Edinburgh's International Award and The International Award for Young People Nigeria are both self-development programs that combine real-world experiences and life skills to develop devoted global citizens. The Award is open to all young people between the ages of 14 and 24 and is offered in more than 140 nations throughout the world. The Award is earned in three progressive levels:
Bronze: for those 14 years or older (after participating for at least six months).
Silver: for those 15 years and older (after participating for at least twelve months).
Gold: for those 16 years and older (after participating for at least eighteen months).
The Award can be earned at any level by engaging in activities from the four categories of skills, service, physical recreation, and adventurous journey, plus the following extra criteria. Gold-level Residential Project.
The purpose of this part is to promote the growth of practical talents such as music, painting, craft work, fashion design, and other personal interests, hobbies, or interests.
Service: The section on service promotes helping people in need and attempts to instill a culture of giving back through volunteer and philanthropic work. Examples include providing first aid, maintaining the environment, caring for the physically challenged, the old, the ill, or visiting orphanages, among others.
Physical recreation: Engaging in physical activity to enhance discipline, health, fitness, balance, and performance. Jogging, basketball, badminton, weightlifting, and more examples come to mind.
Adventure-filled voyage: The purpose of this part is to promote an attitude of exploration and adventure when going on a journey together. A camping trip is used to foster strong collaboration practices, self-confidence, an appreciation for nature, the development of problem-solving abilities, and the fostering of new friendships. Examples include hiking, biking across a state or town, canoeing, and bush walking.
Residential Project: Through interaction with others in a residential setting, this component strives to broaden young people's experiences. This is only done at Gold level, and it gives players the chance to interact meaningfully with people who aren't usually their friends and work toward a shared objective that the participants themselves have established.
Examples include residential language programs, environmental and conservation initiatives, skill-building initiatives, serving others and communities, etc.
