News from the DofE National Centre for all programme leaders and coordinators.


Browse Annual Report 2019 and find out our results for the past year. In the annual report you can also read SROI research resultswhich measured the economic value of DOFE impacts. Among other things, the research confirmed that participation in the DOFE programme positively affects participants' employability and earnings, improves their mental and physical wellbeing and increases their activity in charitable and community activities.

At DOFE Leader Camp (DLC) a varied programme awaits you. On Saturday after arrival there will be group games, dinner together and sharing of experiences. On Sunday, you can look forward to a lecture by Pavel Wieser from Topvision, who will introduce storytelling and give you advice on how to get your surroundings excited about your thoughts and ideas. This will be followed by a workshop with regional managers, after which those interested can go on a small adventure expedition that will last until Monday. Others are expected to leave around 3pm. A questionnaire regarding food preferences and more will be sent to all those who sign up during September. 

Due to the desire to simplify DOFE communication in the Czech environment, we have decided to use of the abbreviation DOFE instead of the original DofE. We firmly believe that using this acronym will be easier for you and our participants.

We are very happy that our website is now also available in English. You can take a look at it here. We would be very happy if you could recommend it to your English-speaking colleagues.

DOFE in the Czech Republic, like the international organisation IAF, aims to ensure that all young people could comply with the DOFE indiscriminately. Our common strategy is to enable young people from disadvantaged backgrounds to enter and successfully complete the programme. For this reason it is possible for the DOFE Coordinator to request the National Center to waive the ORB application fee. For more information please find at this link.

DOFE story
After completing the DOFE program I was #WorldReady


"When I was 16 years old, studying at a British university was more of a dream, but thanks to DOFE this dream has come true. I went from a small-town grammar school in Moravia to the University of Southampton in England and studied three foreign languages. Many people around me discouraged me from this goal and told me not to be a dreamer, that it was unrealistic with my background, but I didn't want to believe them and started working on myself through DOFE." What Petr is doing today and how he built a successful career thanks to DOFE in this interview.
