We offer educational, tailor-made, award winning and worthwhile youth development programmes across the globe which include service learning projects, study abroad programmes, leadership programmes, internships and cultural immersion programmes.
We run a variety of group programs. We offer group programs in the form of volunteer group programs, where the majority of the focus is on the service element, however we also offer international service learning programs for groups who are looking to have a stronger educational focus.
Service Learning is an educational initiative that focuses on taking classroom research and various curricula and introducing these theories into real life services on the ground, that directly benefit the community or environment. These programs will follow a curriculum, with pre and post-trip components, combined with periods of reflective learning.
We aim to increase personal growth and interpersonal skills of each individual on either type of trip, making these programmes ideal for groups looking to complete certain international curricula such as the CAS (Creativity Action Service) elements of the IB (International Baccalaureate) programme, ‘Week Without Walls’ and the Round Square Ideals.
For more information, you can view our volunteer based group programs for high schools or universities, or our service learning programs on our dedicated international service learning website.
