Yorkshire Schools Exploring Society has been delivering expeditions for over 50 years for schoolchildren in Yorkshire. We have travelled to most continents across the globe and have an experienced leadership team. As a charitable organisation we pride ourselves on delivering an expedition that encompasses exploration, fieldwork/projects and awards. So whether you are in education or an adult looking for a leader role search no further: contact us today and we will send you full details of our planned expeditions.

“I want to go!”

If you’re on the look out for some excitement, a challenge, a break from the old routine and a chance to see the world and experience new things, then take a look at the expeditions we offer. You’ll be amazed.

Applications are invited from young people of either gender, from any racial or cultural background, who are either able-bodied or disabled. Prior to application, the young person (and their parents) must be confident that they can safely embark upon training for the proposed activity, and that they will be able to raise the necessary funds for the expedition.

You should be aged between 14years and 19years of age, in full time education in Yorkshire (including Humberside and parts of Cleveland) and ……… have a thirst for adventure!


“I want to lead”

We’re always on the look-out for enthusiastic leaders. If you are interested in working with YSES as an Expedition Leader, either as a Chief, Assistant or Young Leader, then get in touch with us and we’ll most likely invite you to one of our meetings for a chat about how you can get involved.
