British Exploring Society is an authority on transformational youth development through expeditions to remote locations.
Our Young Explorers come from a wide variety of backgrounds; from communities facing high levels of economic and social deprivation and from those where expectations of personal and professional success are high. Often, these people would never cross paths in any other way. With us, they rub shoulders and exchange ideas - in tents and canoes, up mountains and in the jungle.
On expedition, everyone is out of their comfort zone and that’s a great leveller. People’s expectations of themselves and other people are challenged. New alliances are forged, experiences shared and futures are shaped.
Our work is transformational for everyone who participates, Leaders as well as Explorers. We also believe that wider society benefits from the adventurous, resilient, adaptable team players we help to create. Please read on to find out why – and to see the evidence.
