The World Challenge ethos
Global citizenship is one of the key aims of the World Challenge programme. Challengers will experience cultures and environments literally a world away from their home country. This brings an appreciation of the challenges facing other communities and hopefully will awaken a desire to understand, explore, and develop a global perspective on life. It is a truly life-changing experience.
Challengers are expected to take ownership and responsibility for their team mates and the group’s plans, and this focus is at the centre of the World Challenge learning experience. Participation and teamwork are essential factors behind any successful expedition; it is up to the individuals working together within the team whether or not they will get to that bus stop on time or have a well put together meal that night!
World Challenge provides a safe yet challenging expedition through which its leaders support and facilitate the development of the young people in its care through tough but exhilarating experiences. They allow the exploration of comfort zones, promoting personal growth, independent thinking, and resourcefulness, all key qualities to help build successful and fulfilling lives.
