Over 130 pupils from Milford Haven and Pembroke Dock will be offered the opportunity to participate in the DofE Wales programme this year thanks to support from the Port of Milford Haven.
The Port has become a new Silver Associate Supporter of the DofE Award enabling young people from Ysgol Harri Tudur and Milford Haven School to take part in positive activities within the community whilst gaining employability skills for the future.
Training will also be provided to new leaders to ensure the participants receive support throughout the project.
The DofE award is a voluntary, non-competitive personal development programme of activities for young people.
Participants can choose the type of activities they wish to get involved with, such as volunteering, skills, physical and an exciting expedition, all of which build skills, experience and confidence to help them grow and pursue successful careers.
Ian Gwilym, Senior Relationships Manager for DofE Wales, said “It’s fantastic news for our charity that the Port is able to support the further development of the DofE in Pembrokeshire.
“Young people have been particularly badly hit by the pandemic, it’s turned young people’s worlds upside down. Familiar routines and connections of school, college and daily life have been cruelly stripped away, we know that the DofE can provide essential structure, focus and purpose for young people”.
Community Engagement Assistant at the Port, Lauren Williams, added “The Duke of Edinburgh’s Award is a world-renowned programme for enabling young people to explore new opportunities and achieve their goals.
“It’s really important for us to support initiatives that make a real difference to people’s personal wellbeing and we would encourage pupils in Milford Haven and Pembroke Dock to make the most of this fantastic opportunity.”
