Open Award Centers

Open Award Centers are free centers available to everyone involved with The Award where participants, parents and coordinators can come for expert advice, help and to enroll in The Duke of Edinburgh’s Hillary Award.
At an Open Award center, trained coordinators are available to help you decide which activities you want to do for your Award, provide advice and guidance on where to access those activities and answer any questions you may have as well as assisting to plan Adventurous Journeys.

​We run Open Award Centers throughout Auckland year round. These are drop-in centers and open to all participants and people involved with the Award including Award Leaders.
If you are unable to come to a center, but would still like to meet up, then contact us at kathryn@aucklandchallenge.org.nz
For all upcoming events and information see our Facebook page or Events page
