We inspire college students from all over the world to take on the trip of a lifetime while raising money for charity.

Choose a Challenge is disrupting the student travel market by allowing college students the chance to fundraise the cost of an adventure travel trip, while simultaneously donating to charity. 50% of that amount pays for trip’s costs (including flights, food, accommodations, etc) and the other 50% is a direct donation to an amazing cause.

We believe that there is more to life and it's our goal to share that message with you. While we are not a non-profit organization, we do partner with a variety of charities from around the country, offering students the chance to raise money for a cause close to their heart. 

If you’ve got questions, we’ve got answers.
