Due to the COVID-19 restrictions we are not running any face-to-face youth provision at this time. However, the good news is that JLGB Virtual is continuing every Monday - Thursday until the end of August. Watch now at www.jlgb.org/virtual


To achieve your Gold Award, you need to complete an extra section – the Residential section.

This involves four nights and five days away from your home comforts with people you’ve never met, undertaking a shared activity and working together.

It’s a big, exciting and a very fulfilling experience. It may be that you want to build on and improve a talent that you’ve developed in another section, learn something completely new on an intensive course or work on a project to help others. 

From learning to snowboard in Scotland to helping at a children’s camp, from working with the National Trust to helping on an urban recycling project, going on Israel Tour, learning French in Paris to sailing a ship, there are loads of exciting possibilities which gives you the opportunity to find an activity that’s just right for you and something that you feel passionate about.

Whatever you choose to do for your Residential section, it will give you the chance to make a whole new friendship group whilst collaborating with others on a worthwhile and meaningful project.

Please call our DofE Team on 0208 530 8220 or email dofe@jlgb.org if you have any qualms, queries or questions!
