WA – Dukeofed

Welcome to the Award in WA



The Award has operated in WA since 1962. As a non-profit incorporated association we are proud to deliver the world’s leading youth development program, helping young people to discover their purpose, passion and place in the world and become World Ready citizens. Our organisation’s primary goal is to ensure all young people in WA are provided the opportunity to participate in the Award regardless of their personal circumstances.

Busselton Jetty Crew

“The program is run in three parts, focusing on: community; leadership, professional and personal development; and history.

“The crew learn about the history of the jetty why it is here, where it is going, what the future plans are and what it takes to keep it operational and maintained,” Ms Donohoe said.

“It is not just about the environment or conservation side of things, it also looks at where finances come from.”

This year the Busselton Jetty hope to tie in the program to the Duke of Edinburgh Awards after one of their crew members completed both last year.

“It is all about the crew getting something out of this program at the end of the day,” Ms Donohoe said.”
