SERVICE LEARNING

We believe simply being aware of the challenges facing our planet is not enough to transform our world. It is also vital that young people feel inspired and empowered to take action and make a difference.

 

Our community service projects are carefully chosen to link closely to the UN's 17 Sustainable Development Goals to Transform Our World based on such challenges as poverty and hunger alleviation, climate action, sustainable forest management and halting biodiversity loss.

Previous service projects we have facilitated include:

  • Tree planting - Tree planting available on the outer edge of Khao Yai National Park to support with conserving the forest

  • Clearing and removing litter - A range of locations available in Khao Yai National Park to help conserve the wildlife

  • Caring for rescued elephants - Hosted by the Thai Elephant Conservation Centre who specialise in saving elephants from Thailand's tourism trade

  • Supporting conservation efforts in Khao Yai National Park - Supporting the national park rangers with a range of conservation projects to support the forest ecosystem

  • Supporting snake conservation and research - Supporting snake research and conservation efforts at the Sakaerat Biosphere Reserve to help conserve forest biodiversity

  • Renovating schools & community buildings - Various projects available depending on the needs of our partners

  • Teaching English to local students - Support local students to learn English in rural schools

  • Caring for homeless people - Developing beneficial projects and partnerships for homeless people and caring for those in need of food and shelter

  • Caring for elderly people - Providing elderly people with carefully planned workshops and opportunities to learn new skills and activities through our community partnerships

We choose our community service projects and partners carefully to make sure they are safe for children to participate in, have a positive real-world impact, are ethical and support the UN's Sustainable Development Goals.

Please note: The availability of community service projects depends on the needs of our local partners and, as such, unfortunately it's not always possible to guarantee the availability of the community projects listed above

We inspire young people to learn outside the classroom, grow through challenge and adventure and transform our world through positive change.
