We are a non-profit-making organisation delivering the Duke of Edinburgh Award to young people in Crawley and surrounding area. Our minibus is over 15 years old and is in desperate need of being updated! To continue to deliver the D of E Award to local young people, we need to raise funds for a new minibus. £5000 has already been raised, and we are crowdfunding for the remaining funds. We are based at the West Green Community Centre and are a fully volunteer based group of adult staff under the management and support of WSCC YS. The Duke of Edinburgh Award is the world’s leading youth achievement award. From volunteering to physical activities, life skills to expeditions, young people gain valuable skills which are viewed highly by employers and universities. You can help ensure young people have the opportunity to take part in what is often a life changing experience. Please make a pledge today!

What we'll deliver:

  • Opportunity to Youth of Crawley to take part in the award D of E award scheme
  • Keep children off the streets
  • As part of the award children learn new skills, get involved in Physical Education and part take voluntary work

Why it's a great idea:

Its helps YP to build confidence, experience new things and take part in activities which other would not have the opportunity to do so. It also encourages team work, participate in Physical activities (Good healthy lifestyle) and also get to visit new palace in the UK as part of there hikes.

Steps to get it done:

  • Increase participation for children aged 13+ children in the community
