Pole to Pole is
What it takes to be a part of Pole to Pole
Joining a Pole to Pole Team is not about the experience you already have. It is about putting your heart and commitment into a team, into yourself, and into making a difference in this world. It is about the experience you will gain and the impact you will have.
Team Descriptions for Applicants
There are three ways to physically participate in Pole to Pole:
As part of the application process you can specify if you want to be considered for all three types of Teams, or you can specify if you just want to be considered for an Advance or Education Team.

Pole to pole trip for the adventurous
By THE CHRONICLE-JOURNAL - Apr 3, 2006, 22:13
Adventurous souls wanted. Must like to travel under human power only. Must want to save the world.
A Vancouver-based charitable organization is seeking youth leaders aged between 18 and 28 interested in traversing the globe and tackling humanitarian projects around the world.
The Pole to Pole Leadership Institute’s project will start with an expedition team beginning a 10-month, 35,000-kilometre trek from the south to north poles through Africa and Europe.
This international team of youth will travel under their own steam — by foot, ski, bike, kayak and sail.
They will meet up with the advanced team, which will travel to Africa, Europe and Russia to volunteer for six months with established charities on humanitarian projects.
A third team will use the adventures and work of the other two teams to educate students across Europe and North America.
It’s a project the Pole to Pole institute has done before. In 2000 it sent a team of youth from the North Pole to the South Pole through the Americas.
Applications are available online at www.poletopoleleadership.com. Those selected will be invited to a month-long selection camp in British Columbia during September.
