Using overseas expeditions, local training and ongoing coaching, we challenge young Bermudians to harness their full potential and develop skills for life.

Training and Support phase, approx 5 months

During this period, participants take part in a number of activities to increase their physical fitness, and mental preparation for the expedition, as well as improve on their teamwork. At least two residential camps are held, which will include team-building exercises, trekking, camping, swimming, an Adventure Challenge, and an Environmental project. Additionally, during this time, participants receive one on one coaching, and are required to participate in fundraising activities, group fitness sessions, and receive a series of travel vaccinations.

“I had given all I could. I taught children. I built toilets and stoves. I made lifelong friendships. I felt the pain of those less fortunate, but their gratitude, I will never forget. I pushed harder than I ever have before. When I was down, I picked myself up. I overcame sickness, learned valuable life skills and overcame my fears. I never gave up on myself. Lesson learned - I possess all the strength and determination it takes to overcome any obstacle and to be my own hero.” Keri
