The Essex Challenge 2014


Brought to you by the County Youth Programme team, The Essex Challenge gives all five youth sections the opportunity to take part in activities based around fun and engaging themes. The Essex Challenge also encourages us to do more to support moving in and moving on between the sections.

The Essex Challenge for 2014 follows a new format with six themed activities for each term, giving you the flexibility to choose when you complete them. The challenge is to complete at least four activities each term, so it’s up to you which activities you choose. If you have a go at all 18 then that’s half of your programme already planned for the year.

Send your photos and stories to and we’ll use the best ones in Essex Plus to show the rest of the County what you’ve achieved with your young people.

Get stuck in and enjoy the challenge…The Essex Challenge.
