Scholars’ Stories from Costa Rica Service Trip

In August 2012, The Challenge Foundation went on its third annual service trip. Thirteen high school scholars traveled to Chilamate in Costa Rica for ten days to help build a community center and stay with families. The Challenge Foundation partnered with World Leadership School to provide a rich experiential learning curriculum. In addition to service work and homestays, the students developed leadership skills and learned about the rainforest ecosystem.

Our New Website Has Been Launched!

The Challenge Foundation is thrilled to present our new website! Challenge worked with Denver-based web design company BrainSpark Media and photographer Trevor Brown to create our new web presence. We hope you’ll visit often for updates and to learn about the work we are doing with our scholars.

One of the most exciting changes on our new site is that Challenge is now able to accept donations online through, a third-party donation service that works specifically with non-profit organizations.

We hope you enjoy the new site!
