Quest Overseas is driven by a desire to help its project partners and communities in South America and Africa, while providing valuable experiential learning opportunities for young people. QO has been running since 1996, with nearly 20 years' experience of sending teams of young volunteers to provide their support to partnering communities through projects ranging from wildlife sanctuaries and forestry conservation to building sand dams and health clinics. QO also prides itself on its expert expedition leaders who take the teams on bespoke journeys through the Andes or East Africa.

Honestly nothing. There were definitely mishaps along the way be it struggling to find a place to sleep for the night in a small town or our bus breaking down multiple times. But those mishaps only added to the experience and realistically showed me what traveling is really like. All those little bumps on the road just made me more prepared for when I go traveling on my own.
