Congratulations to our Encompass Journey of Understanding Students
We are pleased to announce that the following students have been awarded a place on the Encompass Journey of Understanding:
- Shanice Bland
- Leah Garlock
- Sean McGovern
- Sarah Russo
The Journey of Understanding program takes 26 young people from Israel, Palestine, Indonesia, Pakistan, the United Kingdom and the United States who all gather at an outdoors centre (like Outward Bound) for a week of challenging team-building adventures. It truly is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to forge face-to-face friendships and understanding across the world! The program takes place in the stunning Snowdonia region in Wales. Under the supervision of experienced trainers, their week will be filled with physically challenging outdoor adventures and facilitated cross-cultural discussions. Together the team will have an unforgettable experience as they are set physical and mental challenges and build trust, rapport and understanding skills in accordance with the trust’s vision.
The Encompass Trust was set up in 2003 following the death of Daniel Braden, a young man from the UK who was killed in the 2002 bombing of a nightclub on the Indonesian island of Bali. SU London is extremely proud to be an official partner of the Encompass Trust Journey of Understanding.

Congratulations again to our successful applicants and we wish you a productive, thought-provoking and rewarding experience later this month.
