The School Teams
Each school team, comprising of students and international business mentors, competes to develop sustainable uplift plans that will change lives, forever. Through a fast-paced, online race format, teams are given a specific number of days or weeks to research real-life issues and develop business plans to uplift carefully chosen communities.
As teams progress over a three or five-week race with multiple rounds, they start to tackle more complex issues, including healthcare, infrastructure, design, education, and water harvesting.
Winning business plans are implemented immediately, restoring independence, self-esteem, and dignity to the most vulnerable families in the most challenged places on earth. Students achieve all this by sharing their most precious gifts, their innovation, intelligence, empathy, compassion, time, and talent. Tomorrow’s leaders – changing lives, forever!
Designed to appeal to students of all ages and interests, the race complements: The International Baccalaureate, CAS – Community Action Service, Universities and Colleges Admissions Service (UCAS), Cambridge Global Perspectives, Extended Project Qualification (EPQ), and Duke of Edinburgh’s Award.
The race develops responsible global citizens, tomorrow’s leaders – caring, compassionate, inquiring, internationally-minded, empathetic, and knowledgeable young people who can create a better world through the development of intercultural understanding and respect.
