Our virtual Open Award Centers allow you to book a meeting with one of our experienced DofE Award Leaders to discuss the Duke of Edinburgh’s Hillary Award. Come to an Open Award Center without the added travel time, and at a time that suits you! We find participants who regularly meet with their Award Leader tend to perform better with their Awards.

At a virtual Open Award Center you can discuss anything want about the Duke of Edinburgh’s Award, Auckland Challenge, and Journeys including what is The Award, How to get started, help finding activities and more!

Safety at Virtual Open Award centers: When you book an appointment you can choose to have your meeting recorded, you may request recording is started/stopped at any time throughout the meeting and you may request a copy of this recording from Auckland Challenge. If you are under 18 we strongly encourage you to let a guardian know you are attending an online meeting. All our staff are Police vetted by the Duke of Edinburgh’s Hillary Award.

RSVPs are currently mandatory for all in-person Open Award Centers
