Earning it

The best things in life often aren’t free. Earning it is part of the satisfaction you’ll feel when you finally get on expedition. It also teaches some powerful, lifelong lessons about money management; the value of money, how to budget and negotiate. The journey begins when you sign up and you’ll usually have 12-18 months to get a plan set up. Break it down. Keep it regular. Play to your strengths.

We understand every family’s financial situation is different and we can tell you that over 83% of our students raise the expedition fee themselves. We’ve met students who have earned every single penny, including additional spending money and their own kit and vaccinations. So we know you can do this.

It’s a team effort – earning your expedition fee will force you to create networks, articulate your case, be bold and ask for help and demand a commitment from you. And when you’re sat watching that first sunset, somewhere deep down, you’ll be immensely proud. You got yourself there.

We’re here to help you do it because we know you can. Can’t tell you how you’ll do it but we’ve got thousands of Challengers worth of top tips to share.
