Challenge Leader

Want to travel to amazing destinations for free and gain valuable leadership experience? Challenges Abroad are currently recruiting university students as Challenge Leaders to lead expeditions to any of our 6 incredible project locations next summer (Romania, Tanzania, Peru, India, Thailand and Cambodia). Volunteer, explore, meet new people and have the experience of a lifetime!

The Challenge Leader position is perfect for an outgoing, motivated individual, with good social and communication skills and a passion for travel and volunteering.

Our Leaders recruit a team of 10-20 students from their university to take part in a three-week international adventure next summer. They support and monitor their team as they fundraise throughout the year and during their time abroad. In return, Challenge Leaders get a reduction of 100% on their own fundraising target if they take a full team of 20 members (80% reduction for 15 members and 60% reduction for 10 members). Leaders also receive training as part of our incredible Challenge Leader Programme (with the option to gain an internationally-recognised qualification in Leadership and Management) through a series of training weekends (transport and accommodation costs covered by us). We have staff in the UK and in all of our destinations abroad to offer guidance and support where needed, and each Challenge Leader is assigned a Fundraising and Events Manager to work with them throughout the year.

Our international fundraising challenges are renowned across the UK. This summer, we have sent 400 students to volunteer in and explore six incredible destination countries. Next summer it could be you trekking to the summit of Kilimanjaro, teaching Buddhist monks in Thailand, volunteering with children in care homes in Romania, or taking part in another of our exciting and valuable projects. Wherever you go, the Challenges Abroad experience promises to be a once in a lifetime opportunity!
