World Youth Adventures are firm believers that travel, adventure and community service (experiential learning) offer ways to develop leadership in your students in ways which are far more effective and engaging that what can be achieved in the class room or on the playing field.
Being away from home and the assistance which parents provide requires the individual to have good self-discipline and personal organization skills. The need to be resourceful and responsible for your actions and your belongings builds self-awareness and maturity.
Working alongside and engaging with students from a foreign school, which may be located in remote impoverished village, encourages the students to have a ‘can do’ attitude, to make a difference and have empathy.
Working on a common goal such as a community project, with other members of the group engages the student with many important aspects of leadership; project planning, problem solving, decision making, self confidence and then ultimately reflection once the project is complete.
Often prior to departure the students will engage in fundraising within the school community, this also develops the students leadership capabilities through goal setting and effective networking and communicating.
Our role in the expedition is to take care of the tour logistics and paperwork hassle, leaving you free to recruit students and ultimately enjoy an equally rewarding expedition.
Our expert guides facilitate and encourage the development of leaders and we can work with you in order to maximize the students learning outcomes and development whilst on one of our expeditions.
