The World Challenge enrichment is an opportunity to go on a residential trip to another country. While there you will experience the cultural traditions, complete an activity (such as hiking or kayaking... or so much more) and most importantly complete a charitable task. This is a fantastic experience and something you can put on your CV or personal statement. During the enrichment you will be part of a fundraising team and be a part of planning and hosting events at college to fund your trip.
How can I improve my long-jump? Who should be running this country? Why do women get 'hysterical'? Can you trust your doctor? What's so great about James Bond? How much ancient Greek do you know? - you'd be surprised!
