Topic - World challenge

teflonpete - on 31 Jul 2013
My kids' school have a scheme running called World challenge. Effectively, the kids have to raise 3.5k, a portion of which goes to charity, and then do an extended trip and trek in a foreign country / countries after GCSEs before they start 6th form. This year's teams have gone to trek in Azerbaijan and a section of the silk road.

Some people have said to me that universities and employers look favourably at World challenge on applicants' CVs as it shows resourcefulness, self motivation and openness to other cultures. Some other people think it's an extended holiday payed for by mummy and daddy and does nothing to show the qualities above. What do the UKC collective think?
