Youth Beatz 2023 – Duke of Edinburgh’s Award Residential Opportunity

Youth Beatz Festival is once again delighted to invite young people back to Park Farm Showfield in Dumfries to complete their Duke of Edinburgh’s Award Gold Residential.

The Duke of Edinburgh’s Award is a youth awards programme that helps and enables young people to discover new interests and talents, encouraging them to develop essential skills for life through volunteering and activity-based programmes.

Chair of Dumfries and Galloway Council’s Communities Committee Councillor Ian Blake said: “The Duke of Edinburgh’s Award provides young people with fantastic opportunities to broaden their horizons and to learn new skills. We are excited to be welcoming more young people from Dumfries and Galloway and from across Scotland to take part in this great residential, delivered in partnership with the Duke of Edinburgh’s Award in Scotland.”

Participants are invited from across Dumfries and Galloway and the rest of Scotland in order to undertake their gold residential section at Scotland’s largest free youth music festival. Young people will work alongside the Council’s Youth Work team to work on-site at Youth Beatz 2023, helping to build, deliver and take down the event – providing vital support in the delivery of the Festival.

Vice-Chair of Dumfries and Galloway Council’s Communities Committee Councillor Jackie McCamon said: “Providing young people with opportunities such as the Youth Beatz Duke of Edinburgh’s Award Residential is very important to our Council. We are grateful to the Duke of Edinburgh’s Award and thank them for their ongoing partnership enabling us to create lifelong learning opportunities that allow young people to develop their skills and contribute to their community.”

The Duke of Edinburgh gold level residential will run from Wednesday 28 June until Wednesday 5 July. The residential is free for young people residing in Dumfries and Galloway, and £100 for those who live out with the region (cost includes all meals and accommodation).
