In case you needed some extra convincing, here are some of the top reasons why you should join a volunteer challenge:


1. You get to travel overseas and go on a new sort of adventure.

Our Challenges take you to corners of the globe that are often untouched by tourism. You will have an authentic travel experience that takes you being beyond the traditional tourist excursion to become truly immersed in the community you’re working with. You’ll create memories and experiences that you’ll be telling people about for the rest of your life!


2. You’ll make an impact in a marginalised overseas community.

We believe that the key to creating a more equal world is by everyone doing their bit to make a difference. Joining a Challenge is your opportunity to use your own skills to make an impact and know that by working alongside the FutureSense Foundation, you’re contributing to a well thought out program that will have a long-term, positive effect on the community.


3. You’ll get amazing work experience in a field you’re passionate about.

No matter what you’re studying, you’ll gain some amazing experience that relates to your degree. On top of this you’ll also develop skills important to all employers, such as teamwork, leadership, problem solving, communication and adaptability!


4. You’ll make new friends.

There’s no doubt our volunteers make lifelong friends with their team mates. Travelling and working with a group of people who have the same passions and goals as you is incredibly inspiring and empowering! On your Challenge you’ll share so many new experiences that will help you form a strong friendship.


5. To realise your leadership potential.

You have the opportunity to join a Challenges Abroad Australia trip as a Challenge Leader, which means you’ll recruit and lead an inspiring group of students to your chosen program location. We invest a lot in this program because we believe that today's students are tomorrows global leaders. By becoming a Challenge Leader, you unleash your powerful potential as an individual and your ability to make an impact both at home and overseas by inspiring a new generation of Global Citizens!
