The Duke of Edinburgh’s Award (DofE) is a real adventure from beginning to end. It doesn’t matter who you are, or where you are from, you just need to be aged between 13 and 24 and ready to jump into the best time of your life! The Ware DofE sessions are for young people in the East Herts area and are held once every three weeks on Fridays at the Ware Young People’s Centre (see below for dates).
If you’re aged between 10 and 17 years old, you can join a St John Ambulance cadet unit. At cadets it's all about fun, adventure and community. As a cadet you will learn first aid and how to save a life. Once qualified, cadets can put their first aid and communication skills into practice by providing first aid to the public at events and teaching first aid to other young people and adults. If you become a St John's Ambulance Cadet you will learn vital skills to be the difference between life and death in an emergency.
The YC Hertfordshire Bishop’s Stortford Young People’s Centre is for young people aged 13 to 17. There is a wide variety of things to do from sports and cooking to making music in our music studio and joining discussions. YC Hertfordshire youth workers and personal advisers are on hand to give you support and guidance. They are friendly professionals you can talk to about subjects from health and healthy relationships to careers. They can also help you to get an idea you have off the ground through our Young People’s Forum.
