Independent trips for those brave enough to take the road less travelled with a group of like-minded friends.
Grab a mate or come on your own
The project independence team is made up of students from all over the country excited to take the adventure of a lifetime.
Running independently of school, you’ll get all the benefits of the training, support and safety of a World Challenge experience with a ready-made team of like-minded young travellers (aged 15-19 at the point of travel) who you’ll get to know in the build up to the trip ahead.
Each year, we hand select a list of the very best destinations and have (limited) spots available for those brave young souls ready to take up the challenge.
All that’s left to do is choose your destination, sign up and put the dates in your diary.
For ultimate adventure and leadership opportunities. Launch Meeting and Pre Departure Training included. Travel from the UK with your qualified World Challenge Expedition Leader.
