“At Challenges Abroad, we believe one student, one team, one programme can be a catalyst for change. Over the past 10 years, we have sent out thousands of students and seen them grow as global citizens and develop as future leaders. The impact that our volunteers make in our partner communities continues to be inspiring. Volunteering abroad gives you the chance to challenge yourself, experience new things, and realise your potential to create positive change in the world. We believe that together we can make a difference and build a brighter future in our partner communities.”

“The opportunity to travel not only opens your eyes to the wider world, it allows you to step out of your comfort zone and learn more about yourself than you could imagine. It is a privilege to work with students, from the moment they first hear about Challenges Abroad, to the moment they touch back down in the UK after their incredible Summer Challenge. It only takes one student to make a huge difference overseas and I am so excited to invite you to be a part of our programmes.”

“Travelling is something that all young people should have the opportunity to do and after my journey climbing Mount Kilimanjaro, I have learnt the positive benefits of challenging yourself and volunteering overseas. With a big passion for the arts, it is a privilege to be able to work with like minded students who are able to share their passions overseas and help to build a brighter future in our partner communities.”

“I’ve always been passionate about being able to make a positive impact however big or small. I was lucky enough to volunteer in Sri Lanka whilst at school and really enjoyed teaching spoken english and trekking. My role involves helping students prepare for their Challenge and it is an absolute pleasure to see participants grow into globally minded volunteers.”
