Duke Of Edinburgh Training Day Postponed

October 16, 2014

The Duke of Edinburgh’s International Award Bermuda BEST Joint Training Day for all bronze participants has been postponed due to the threat of Hurricane Gonzalo.

A spokesperson said, “Participants and parents will be notified of the alternative BEST training date as soon as possible. Questions, comments or concerns should be addressed to the appropriate Award Leader, or you may contact the National Award Office for additional information.

“We apologize for any inconvenience, and we are hopeful that the entire island remains safe as the storm approaches.

“The Duke of Edinburgh’s International Award Bermuda has also relocated our administrative office to Richmond House, third floor, #12 Par-la-Ville Road, Hamilton. The Award office is available to visitors by appointment only.

“Thank you to Conyers Dill and Pearman for their long-time support of our youth development programme and for graciously providing this new office location for The Award to operate. We would also like to thank Endurance Specialty Holdings Ltd. for their generosity in housing The Award office over the past five years.

“The Award is one of Bermuda’s leading youth development programmes and is available to everyone between the ages of 14 and 25 who wish to participate.

“Our participants thrive as they overcome personal challenges, enhance employment skill sets, increase self-confidence, learn much needed critical thinking skills, and establish positive peer relationships through team building opportunities.

“All of these combined lead to the production of well-rounded global citizens who take pride in themselves and in their communities.

“To get involved, contact us for additional participant information, volunteer positions and sponsorship opportunities via our website, by email at director@theaward.bm, or by telephone at 537.4868.”
