All in the detail

Finding the right program for you is key to what we do, so we spend time to understand your aspirations, challenges, fears and dreams to best match your expectations and provide you with a fulfilling journey on every level. We do this through honest conversation and detailed planning so you are best placed to be a dynamic volunteer, learning and growing through your journey.

Your well-being and personal development is important to us. We believe everyone has potential, is valuable and can make a meaningful contribution to the wider community or environment. By participating in one of our teams you will be able to connect and support deserving projects overseas which in turn will bring about personal rewards as there is nothing more powerful as helping others. Our programs will also provide a platform to reflect on cultural attitudes and values so you will be able to see and effect the challenges our project co-ordinators face.
