Our Alternative Schoolies take groups of 5-10 school leavers on a volunteering trip abroad. These trips run for 2 weeks after the end of school exams. It’s a great way to spend this time doing meaningful volunteering, learning about new cultures, and seeing the world.
You’ll be able to volunteer alongside other school leavers and get to know them through activities and weekend trips.
These trips are supported by Projects Abroad staff who are with you throughout the day. It’s a safe, structured way of tackling unique experiences and challenges.
Alternative Schoolies help you make the most of this point in your life, so you can give back, make new friends and learn things beyond the classroom.

Is volunteering overseas for Schoolies right for me?

These projects fit easily into school holidays and let you build skills that will help you in the next phase of your education or career.
