Thinking of applying to be a challenge leader?


We are always on the lookout for outgoing students with a passion for adventure to join our team of Challenge Leaders each year. Together, they are set to raise almost $5 million globally for charity over the next 12 months.

If you have what it takes to get a group of students signed up and fully support them in order to help smash their fundraising targets, please let us know! We are expanding to universities all across the United States and would love to hear from you. 

No Fundraising Target

Your number #1 role as a challenge leader is to get 20 people on board from your university. If you do that, we’ll wipe away your fundraising target – completely.

Stand Out From the Crowd

There is not much that looks better on a resume than having led a team of students up a mountain or on a trek across Nepal. Stand out from the crowd and show future employers that you’re a go-getter. Plus, who knows, we might end up hiring you ourselves…

Be the inspiration

It is your responsibility to guide your team through the entire process. From signing up for the challenge to the time of departure for the expedition, you will learn what it takes to inspire, encourage, and motivate your fellow peers. We will make sure you get the support you need and come out of this with the confidence to take on any challenge.

Make a Real Difference

By leading a team to their fundraising targets, you’ll help raise over $60,000 for charity. There’s no better feeling than knowing what that money can do and the fact you raised it. 

The Challenge of a Lifetime

Being a challenge leader isn’t all about leading your team; you will also be tackling the challenge yourself. Out of all the things you’ll do during college, there are not many experiences that are as challenging as this, but trust us – you’ll remember it forever.



Are you willing to step out of your comfort zone?

Do you have what it takes to seize the moment and take on a challenge of a lifetime? We don’t just want people who are up for a challenge, but rather people who would really love to experience a completely different way to travel. It’s not just the physical test on the challenge itself – you’ll be recruiting your team, assisting them in the run up to the expedition, and helping them reach their fundraising target. Do you have what it takes?

Love meeting new people?

Prefer being "out-and-about" versus feeling stuck in the school library with your head in a book? If you come equipped with an outgoing personality and feel prepared to approach the unsuspecting group sitting in student union to come join you on a huge adventure, we would love for you to join our team of student leaders in the USA! We guarantee that you will meet some incredible people in this role; confidence is everything!

Passionate about making a difference?

The challenge isn’t just about making it to the summit or finish line – it’s about raising crucial funds for some incredible charities. You will be responsible for helping your team meet their fundraising targets. Not to be taken lightly, we want people who really care about making a difference to take this on.


Want to encourage, motivate and inspire other students?

“When the going gets tough, the tough get going.” As cliché as this might sound, you will need determination and a strong drive to recruit a team and propel them towards the end goal. You will probably be faced with obstacles along the way, but in the end, it is important to use your enthusiasm and creativity to overcome these road blocks. We want to make sure nothing stands in the way of you and your team.

Determined to make the most of your university experience?

Are you the type of person who does not let an opportunity pass you by? Here at Choose a Challenge, we strongly believe that your college experience shouldn’t just be limited to the lecture hall and library – we believe the experiences available outside the classroom are just as valuable. If you are willing to take a risk and push yourself to achieve things you never dreamt of doing, the Challenge Leader role may be for you.
