Outward Bound and the DofE
Not everyone know’s this, but when the Duke of Edinburgh was growing up he was taught by Kurt Hahn. The very same Kurt Hahn that co founded Outward Bound! Small world, right?
In fact, the guy made such an impression on His Royal Highness that he inspired him to set up his very own DofE Award, based on the old Moray Badge at Gordonstoun school. No wonder we’ve got so much in common!
It’s no accident that the DofE was also our Patron for over 65 years. Helping us spread our mission and Kurt Hahn’s motto to over 30 countries and millions of young people worldwide: “there is more in you than you think”.
