Friends Nathan (left) and James had frequent problems with the police before entering the Duke of Edinburgh Prize.

If he hadn’t won the Duke of Edinburgh Award, James says he would “probably be in jail.”

This award is one of the most important in the world and is focused on rewarding young people from more than 140 countries and territories around the world.

The recognition encourages young people to design their goals and challenge themselves to achieve their goals.

For some of the millions of young people who have taken up this challenge, such as Britain’s James, winning it has been a radical life change full of opportunities.
