In late 2013 we formed The Duke of Ed Victoria Alumni Committee to grow a vibrant and involved Alumni program that provides valuable experiences for Victorian Alumni beyond the Gold Award.
The Victorian Alumni group is driven by a dynamic committee of young people seeking out opportunities for fellow alum to make new connections, expand networks and live the values of The Duke of Ed into professional ventures.
