At British Exploring Society trust is central to our work and to the expedition programmes we run. It’s a very special gift from the volunteers and other professionals we work with. We depend on the people around us doing what they say they are going to do. We rely on integrity and the reliability of our volunteers and partner organisations. It’s a liberating, enabling environment to work in – but it’s also critical to our success as a youth development organisation interested in preparing young people for positive adult lives.

The often-intangible sum of our attributes as an organisation; our name, history, reputation, what we do, and the way we talk about and present ourselves is what would generally be called our ‘brand’. It includes everything which distinguishes us, and could also be described as our ‘DNA’. We are represented by large numbers of friends, volunteers, members, partners and participants, so it is obviously important that this DNA is accurate.

We continue, as we have always done, to prepare young people for expeditions to remote locations where they face challenges, acquire outdoor skills and learn about themselves. But since publishing our headline strategy, Advance and Ascend, we have started to make good progress reaching new audiences, working with more young people and becoming more inclusive. There is now a growing mismatch between what we do and how we describe what we do.

So, what is it that’s fundamentally different about what we do? Our ethos, values, approach and the level of challenge we provide are all distinctive – but these will only really be obvious with hindsight.

Lots of young people are being asked to take on debt and make big, rational decisions with long-term consequences. So, I thought I’d focus on the major practical differences which mark us out from commercial providers of overseas experiences for young people which might be more helpful to a young person trying to decide what to do:
