Auckland Challenge

We are coordinators of the Duke of Edinburgh’s Hillary Award for the greater Auckland Region. Auckland Challenge coordinates The Award on behalf of several schools as well as providing an opportunity to do The Award for youth who have left school, home schoolers and those attending schools where The Award isn’t run.

As coordinators for your Award our role is to guide you through The Award, help you find activities, approve and verify your activities, mentor you through, and sign off your Award. With Auckland Challenge you get unlimited email, phone and online support throughout your Award.

We provide mentoring, support and guidance for participants throughout and after their Award Journey, helping participants to reach their full potential.

Auckland Challenge Inc. are an accredited provider of The Duke of Edinburgh’s Hillary Award in the Auckland region. They coordinate the whole Award, especially for youth aged 13 to 25 who wish to participate, but do not have access to a coordinator through schools or youth groups. Auckland Challenge mentors participants through the Physical Recreation, Skills, Voluntary Service, and Adventurous Journey Training sections. Auckland Challenge runs six Open Award Centres throughout the Auckland Region – Central, East, South, West and Northshore. For further information about days and times the Open Award Centres run please click here.
