Our challenge leaders are an integral part of our work and we are always on the lookout for dedicated students to join the team.

WHY BECOME A CHALLENGE LEADER?
Joining the Choose a Challenge team as a trip leader comes with a few great guarantees…
DISCOUNTED ADVENTURE TRAVEL
See the world, experience the extraordinary, go on an unforgettable trip AND receive a leader discount!
TICK OFF YOUR BUCKET LIST
Dreaming of summiting a world-famous mountain or tackling a 26 mile run? Now is the time to take on the ultimate challenge.
MAKE NEW FRIENDS
You will be joined by like-minded adventurers embarking on the challenge of a lifetime together, each for an amazing cause.
RAISE FUNDS FOR CHARITY
Help to fundraise thousands for your charity, which will not only feel hugely rewarding, but will change and impact many lives.
If you aren’t already convinced then we’re sure you will be when you hear that, not only do you get to head out on the trip of a lifetime and receive discounts on your fundraising target, but you will also gain invaluable leadership experience and obtain transferable skills that’ll make your CV stand out from the crowd. How many other students can say that they have led a team of their peers on a European marathon, or overseas trek, and raised thousands for charity in the process? Plus, who knows, we might end up taking you on ourselves!
Alongside the unforgettable experiences and incredible friends for life you will gain by becoming a Challenge Leader, your skills will be quantifiable through the online components offered by the Institute of Leadership and Management (ILM) who have recently accredited and ‘Institute Approved’ the Challenge Leader Programme.
As a challenge leader, you’ll be central to the success of the event. With our help, you’ll make a recruitment plan specific to your campus and we’ll provide you with all the materials to help you recruit a team of fellow students. Once your team are on board, you will work alongside the Student Fundraising Officers at your chosen charity to provide one-to-one and group support to help get everyone to their fundraising targets and our team will provide you with all the support for the trip itself, including travel advice, training, pre-departure briefings, and more.
Remember, the challenge isn’t just about making it to the summit, or the finish line – it’s about raising crucial funds for incredible charities. You will be responsible for helping your team meet fundraising targets. There’s no better feeling than knowing what that money can do, and the fact you raised it.
