Schoolies With Impact is a meaningful alternative to the traditional schoolies trip here in Australia. You'll commence the program midway through Year 11 and throughout the next 18 months we'll support you as you prepare for your meaningful and impactful overseas trip.
From the get-go you'll begin your global citizenship journey here in Australia as you participate in 3 incredible personal development and leadership workshops throughout year 11 and 12. These workshops will be facilitated by our amazing partner Character Builders and will help equip you with the necessary skills for your journey. You'll have a wonderful time with schoolies participants from across the state as you learn how to shape YOUR story to make the biggest impact you can on your life and the lives of others. You'll learn important core values and character strengths that will not only prepare you to travel and make an impact overseas, but transform you into a Global Citizen and future leader. You will build your confidence, leadership, self esteem and team work skills, all while meeting other like minded school leavers from across the state!
This will be a 12 day adventure like no other! Travelling to either Cambodia, Thailand or India after your Year 12 exams, you'll spend time volunteering with the local community on important projects and seeing some of the best cultural sites on an adventure like no other! During your volunteering challenge you'll spend 5 days working with the local community on a range of activities. At one of our local schools you'll deliver exciting workshops sessions to the children that help to develop their life skills and get them engaged with their education. Think activities like music, sport, art, drama, photography or even IT - things that these children are missing from their day to day education. You'll also get to visit some amazing sites as you travel around the country of your choosing: be it Angkor Watt in Cambodia, the Taj Mahal in India or helping elephants at a sanctuary in Thailand!
