Our one-year youth programme takes a three -step approach:
The Nepali youth are carefully selected by our team of coaches. Participants must be at least 16 years old when they enter the programme. The main selection criterion is motivation. We consider this as the main indicator of success. When they are motivated and choose 100% consciously for our programme, then the impact of the QuestTrek is at its greatest.
Prior to the start of QuestTrek, our youth coaches organize two introduction sessions. The first session takes place two months before the scheduled date of departure. The second session, combined with international participants, takes place three to five days before the scheduled date of departure.
The main goals of these sessions are:
· ensuring mentally and physically stability for the rigors of the programme
· understanding the programme’s core concepts.
When the participants completed QuestTrek, they are invited for a follow up programme called QuestTribes. This programme includes six training days spread across the remainder of the year. Ideally, these trainings are organized every six weeks. The purpose is to continue the process initiated during the QuestTrek. Individual coaching sessions along with group sessions help with further developing life skills and tackling whatever challenges or obstacles the participants are currently facing.
QuestTrek has more impact in combination with QuestTribe. During QuestTrek, participants undergo a mental healing process, where a door to new opportunities and insights is opened. QuestTribe helps them to keep this door open and become actors of change in their own lives, of others and their nation.
We make social impact through our carefully designed programme for Nepali youth. If you look at the Sustainable Development Goals (SDG’s), then it becomes even more clearer.
SDGs are the United Nations global development goals. These are bold universal agreements to end poverty in all its dimensions and craft an equal, just and secure world.

website of United Nation’s Sustainable Development Goals.
The MyQuest Foundation contributes directly to six of the 17 SDG’s, as described below. One interesting aspect is that the SDG’s are officially known as “transforming our world: the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development”. Our programme stands for transformation. Only by transforming ourselves, can we transform the world.
