The Duke of Edinburgh's Hillary Award welcomes Karen Ross as the new National Director. Karen is attracted to the National Director role by the issues she sees facing the Award: addressing the increasing diversity in New Zealand, looking at the way the organisation communicates, and developing the impact of the Award in an ever changing environment.
It was amazing to be at the Bronze Award ceremony in Christchurch on Friday 14th October where 6 participants, who were part of our pilot programme at Christchurch Men's Prison, received their Bronze Award. The programme was run through the Joshua Foundation, funded by the Friedlander Foundation. One of the Bronze recipients said "Feels good to show family. Like, they're not proud you're here, but just proud getting on with your time and learning new skills." Watch the full report at TVNZ here.
Our longstanding, highly respected Director who has led our high achieving Award national office for many years is retiring. We are currently in the process of recruiting a new National Director to lead New Zealand's delivery of The Duke of Edinburgh's Hillary Award.
