Volunteering for Teens in Groups

What is a Rite of Passage?

For thousands of years, Indigenous and traditional communities recognized the importance of transitioning safely from one stage of life to another through Rites of Passage.

These programs utilize an educational model based on the Rite of Passage Framework and are designed specifically for groups of teens aged 15-18 years.

This is a structured program with activities designed to expand awareness & confidence through self discovery, connectedness and giving back to those less fortunate.

"Flip and I did not realise how AMAZING this experience would be! We formed such close bonds with all the teachers and students and they seriously felt like family by the end of the week. We will 100% return. Everything was a 10/10. Hosts were so nice and hospitable....."
"My month in Vanuatu was simply priceless. The first two weeks were very far out of my comfort zone but a very positive and constructive challenge. Having to learn how to conduct the health checks, blood pressure in particular, were challenging."
"The trip was an experience of a lifetime and I’m very thankful for the opportunity! The team were very good and friendly. They made you feel at home. They were very thoughtful and kind. When I was in Bali, I was ill for a few days and they made sure I was ok."
