Youth Development charity specialising in delivering challenging wilderness expeditions to some of the worlds most beautiful unexplored regions!
The British Schools Exploring Society is an industry leader in the field of wilderness expeditions. The society has been offering remote, challenging expeditions to locations across the world since its inception in 1932. Originally specialising in polar exploration, the society now boasts a profile of expeditions covering polar, jungle, desert and mountain regions including expeditions in the Himalayas, the Amazon and the Arctic circle.
The society runs a number of programmes including:
- Summer expeditions for young people aged 16 - 22, designed to fit within an academic holiday
- Gap Year expeditions for young people aged 18 - 25 offer a greater degree of challenge and tend to be slightly longer in duration, usually in spring or autumn.
- Outreach expeditions incorporate a significant period of training in the UK before the expedition and are designed to offer opportunities for youth development to some of the UKs most disadvantaged young people.
- Leadership development programmes are aimed at slightly older participants looking at starting a career and aim to use the expedition environment to develop leadership skills which can ultimately be put to use in a range of professional environments.
