Duke of Edinburgh...closing 2018 with an adventure

Youth.inc offers the Duke of Edinburgh International Award as part of its programme. This is an opportunity for young people to develop their skills, get physically active, be of service and experience adventure. December saw 13 young people doing the 2-day trial expedition for the Duke of Edinburgh Bronze Award and 11 young people doing the 3 day trial expedition for the Duke of Edinburgh Silver Award. The young people camped in Ghajn Tuffieha and Dingli.

During their route in the countryside they stopped to enjoy nature and the historical buildings that one finds in the country side. In the evening the young people experienced the great outdoors by cooking on fire and observing the stars. During these trails we also had students from the Youth work and community studies observing as part of their university studies.

 


“ It was a great experience, the countryside was stunning, I never knew that in Malta we had nice countryside. I also like watching the starts by the fire in the evening. This experience is helping me be more independent. “ Participant
