Quest Overseas

Programs and Reviews

Quest Overseas is founded by Michael Amphlet. Driven by a desire to leave the city and create a more rewarding lifestyle both for himself and others, he contacted just 20 different schools and convinced 8 students to join him on Quest's maiden voyage. And so it began, on the 15th February 1996, the first ever Quest Overseas team flew out to Lima for a 10 week adventure - six weeks working on a children's project followed by a four week expedition trekking, bussing and boating through Peru. The trip had a lot in common with the expeditions of the great explorers; everyone (leaders included) was stepping out onto unknown terrain, but all were willing to face whatever came their way, to learn, work and explore.
