Community opportunities for young people


  • The Duke of Edinburgh Award is a high quality, challenging and rewarding programme of personal development activities for anyone aged 14-25. It is highly flexible and gives young people the opportunity to do something that will be of real benefit to the community and the environment. In return, the Award provides participants with a range of personal skills and life experience.
    A number of local secondary schools have strong links with the Award, so are a good first point of contact.

  • The Scouting movement is a great way for children of all ages to learn new skills that will be of great value throughout their lives, become involved in their local communities and socialise. There are a number of local scouting groups for boys and girls from the age of 6 upwards throughout the Borough.
  • There are some opportunities for local voluntary work available to older children. For information and details of availability, contact W.A.V.S. - Woking Association for Voluntary Service
