OUR Schoolies volunteer PROJECTS


Always Ethical, Always Sustainable

Thoroughly researched and proudly sustainable, our community volunteer projects overseas are the ultimate highlight for many Schoolies Unearthed teams. When you choose to volunteer for Schoolies, you choose to truly immerse yourself in, and gain knowledge of your new village home. Whether you’re helping out on building and renovation projects or working on conservation and education initiatives, you will interact directly with the local community and contribute meaningfully to their lives.


Some of our past projects include –


  • Renovating and building new school classrooms

  • Solar hot water and heating installation projects

  • Building green houses for micro financing schemes

  • Constructing toilets and washing facilities to assist with health and hygiene issues

  • Building kitchens and vegetable patches to assist with meals for students

  • Assisting with wildlife conservation projects

We say no to orphanages

With Schoolies Unearthed there is no ‘voluntourism’, gratuitous projects or orphanage visits. Instead, we collaborate with local partners and communities to ascertain every project is sustainable and responsible. Read more about our stance on orphanages here.

We partner with the UN

We are a signatory of the United Nations Global compact, the world’s largest corporate sustainability initiative. Our community projects align with the
17 Global Goals for Sustainable Development, which means when you volunteer with us, you’re working towards global goals that stand for a better future. And we think that’s pretty great.
