WORLD CHALLENGE

Preparing young people for life! We believe that life skills, such as resilience, empathy and leadership, are developed through real life experience and we enable young people to develop these key skills through powerful student-led expeditions to the developing world.

The Original School Expeditions Company

World Challenge provides educational school trips that inspire students to take on the world!
With over 7,000 students travelling on expedition every year, we have a great deal of experience to draw upon. Our teams embark on challenging school trips to one of 50 destinations around the world in Africa, Asia, South East Asia, South America and Central America! No other company has come close to organising as many school expeditions as we have. Our experience means that schools benefit from a level of safety and service that is second to none.
Through teaching life skills and expanding minds outside the classroom, our expeditions truly provide a life-changing experience!
