New here? What is C:F?
Challenge:Future is a new way of living, actively engaging youth around the world, accelerating their ideas, talent and leadership, forging innovation and sustainability for a better future that works for all.

What do other interns say?
“My first working day at C:F was beautiful and sunny. However, I had a lazy morning; I was tired from whole week’s exams, seminar papers, lectures, and home-works. But, there I was... I knocked on the door, I smiled and said hi to Andreja and Matjaz, I sat on my desk, and turned on my computer. I could kill for a cup of coffee. And then, suddenly, in 10 minutes, the team started to become bigger and bigger. In 10 minutes I was part of a thought-provoking online meeting and I was subject to one of the warmest online welcomes. In only 10 minutes, I didn’t need coffee to wake up. The C:F Office turned into a place where I could win over my laziness and feel like I need to do more, experience more. And I still feel so.”
'It has been a turning point for me, living in foreign country, working in the real business field, and meeting with creative people. It makes me break down all the stereotypes and old thoughts, and be myself. Of course, I have learned working tools and procedures, but inner development, great experience with nice people and fresh nature and funny tea time are the most valualbe things I have gained at C:F!'
