Leadership Challenges

Helping young people to tackle new adventures outdoors is a shared value of O&CC and Leadership Challenges. We’re delighted to donate products that enable this life-changing work. 


Leadership Challenges are honest and passionate about people development. They believe everyone can be a leader, everyone can make a difference, and everyone can leave a legacy.

Their core values are:

Teamwork: To work seamlessly together towards a shared, common goal


Respect: Respect in all LC do, both inside and outside of Leadership Challenges, is key to their ethos and values


Integrity: Through trust and transparency, they always try to do the right thing, whilst upholding the values and principles of Leadership Challenges


People: People are seen as the most valuable asset; LC nurture, guide, advise and reward


Leadership: Through clear vision, focus and goals LC can achieve growth and individual leadership objectives


Courage: When challenged morally, mentally and physically, LC strive to do what is right at the time, by either showing restraint or pushing limits, and having the strength and confidence to achieve their aims.

Who they work with:

The Young Leaders Programme delivers leadership and personal development for young adult groups and youth foundations, helping participants discover focus, build confidence and overcome obstacles.

How do they do this:

Leadership Challenges is working with Bath Rugby Foundation on an exciting new mentoring programme for young people, culminating in a 2-week cycling challenge in the Andes mountains in Chile.


The above video shows the launch of the programme, explains the reasons behind it and the impact that it will have.


The 36-week course which started in Spring 2019, nurtures the development of leadership abilities in a group of young people, by empowering them to improve the quality of their lives and assist with their full integration into wider society.


The Young Leaders Mentor Programme, which is part of our overall Leadership Programme, is designed to offer support through teaching additional life skills and individual mentoring activity, to build confidence and raise aspirations of the young leaders involved through interactive, informative and fun sessions.


The Young Leaders Mentor Programme is simple in concept, yet ambitious and achievable, with a huge pro-social impact on society. The programme will push the limits of the mentees; through dedicated mentors, guiding those involved, creating a model for many more young people to get involved in a wider, future, national roll-out.
