Leadership & Team Building Experiences

Volunteer in Africa on one of our amazing programmes!

Our Leadership and Team Building Experiences empower students not only to find courage in themselves but also to find strength in their classmates.

Students take on the challenges of the wilderness guided by our experienced, fully qualified staff members. Outdoor education compels students to learn by trial and error as they problem solve their way to success. Students are prompted to reflect on the strategy, skills and values learned on our courses that they will then be able to apply as they take on the challenge of becoming young adults.
