This summer, a group of 12 students will have the opportunity to go overseas to Australia for a 4-week volunteer and travel program. The invitation to volunteer abroad is open to students from all over the San Diego area. Benefits include real-life experience in scientific study as well as a chance to help another country.
During the first two weeks, students do 80 hours of volunteer work in *Sustainable Community Development*–doing basic health care and pre-med projects, building schools and houses, and working on education programs for children– or in *Conservation*–where they can work in rainforest regeneration, habitat restoration or endangered species management with elephants, dolphins, cheetahs or sea turtles!
During the second two weeks, students will travel all throughout their host country, getting immersed into the culture and exploring its natural wonders. They will also get to do exciting activities like white water
rafting, zip lining, surfing, cave kayaking, going on wildlife safaris and WAY more!
This program is a wonderful way to have some hands-on educational experiences—throughout the 4 weeks, students will be learning all about the communities, ecosystems, and animals with which they are interacting! Furthermore, it gives students an opportunity to do something meaningful with their summer while exploring another culture and country.
