HAPPY NEW YEAR everyone! 🎊
We hope everyone had a happy new year and a festive holiday season. It's that time of the year again when people take a look back on the year that was and what they want to accomplish in 2018. Hopefully one of your goals, if you've signed up already, is to take on the trip of a lifetime with us later on this year. We here at Choose a Challenge have a lot of things to be excited about for 2018. We've got an incredible new office in Brooklyn, we're in the process of working with more schools, and we'll be sending out our first round of student trips starting in May! We're setting the bar high this year and there will be a lot of milestones along the way including these two very recent announcements:
WELCOME TO THE FAMILY
Choose a Challenge has officially partnered with Pencils of Promise. In partnership with local governments and communities, Pencils of Promise create schools and education programs in Laos, Ghana, and Guatemala around the common goal of education for all.
Our team will soon be partnering them with some of our new universities and will look to send out their first round of trips towards the end of this year. We're excited to see this new partnership flourish and we'll keep you up to date every step of the way!
WE HAVE LIFT OFF
As of January 5th, 2018 we will be launching our official YouTube channel. It will have videos of our past treks, original content, and even user-submitted videos from our past student trekkers from all over the world.
In the coming months we'll be creating useful how-to videos for our trekkers and to showcase how every aspect of Choose a Challenge works.
