The Challenge Network

Visit Website

The Challenge Network is a fast-growing social enterprise that connects and inspires people across Britain to strengthen their communities.The Challenge is a programme that brings together young people from different backgrounds, builds their confidence, and challenges them to make a difference in their local community. In 2013, 12,500 young people across London, the West Midlands and the North West will take part in The Challenge, for an intensive three-week summer programme followed by four weekends in the autumn.   We bring together sixteen year olds from across a community and challenge them to connect with people from different backgrounds, learn key skills for the workplace, and make a difference in their community.  They achieve this by completing three challenges: •       The Personal Challenge: Teams of young people bond through a week of challenging outdoor activities. •       The Team Challenge: Teams return home and use their skills to experience serving the local community. •       The Real Challenge: Teams work to design and organise activities that will bring the local community together. The Real Challenge Design (RCD) takes part during the last part of the summer programme and the Real Challenge Action (RCA) takes place over four weekends in September.     All young people who complete The Challenge graduate from our programme and are signposted into year-round volunteering , membership and social engagement opportunities through The Challenge Society.   The Challenge is part of the National Citizen Service (NCS), a life-changing experience for 16 and 17-year-olds. The scheme is available to people from all backgrounds. Young people get the chance to do outdoor activities, meet new people and give something back to their communities. By taking part they learn new skills and have a great experience they can put on their CVs or college applications. NCS promotes:   ·         a more cohesive society by mixing participants from different backgrounds; ·         a more responsible society by supporting young people’s transition into adulthood; ·         a more engaged society by enabling young people to work together to create social action projects in their local communities.
