TD Scholarships for Community Leadership

Community heroes do good work because they are inspired to, not for the recognition

Unique in Canada, the TD Scholarships for Community Leadership are designed to recognize the achievements of youth who are making a difference and help them realize their educational goals.

After all, today’s community-minded students are tomorrow’s leaders. Have you made your community a better place? Then we want to hear from you. You may qualify for one of our Community Scholarships.

Global Duke of Ed survey about stereotypes surrounding young people
Are young people lazy, entitled and narcissistic?
What do you think?
There are a lot of labels and stereotypes surrounding young people today. Do people around the world really think they are true…or far from it? While we do not necessarily agree with the statement above, The Duke of Edinburgh’s International Award is conducting a Global Survey to find out, and we want to know what you think.
 
If you’re over 25 and work with the Award and/or young people, or you work generally within business, education, government, community or other such areas, please tell us your thoughts here

If you’re aged between 16 – 25, we would love to hear from you here
 
Are there other people that you think we should hear from? We want to try and get the opinions of as many people as possible, so please do share the surveys as widely as you can.
 
And remember to share it with any Award participants, leaders or supporters that you know, as well as anyone else who may be interested in giving us their thoughts. 
 
Thanks for your support – We look forward to sharing results at the end of the year!
