Travel Teacher | Volunteer projects in Fiji

Volunteer Abroad | overview

Explore the south pacific to it fullest by traveling to not one but two countries!  Experience 'Fiji time' as you mix with the locals and take in the rich culture. Enjoy the breath taking scenery of Aitutaki, Cook Islands and experience the worlds most stunning lagoon.  Our projects are focused on initiatives within local communities, who have needs around education and improving educational facilities.

On this multi-country project you will be volunteering in two similar primary & secondary school environments primarily with young students, assisting them with their education and personal development.  You will be working alongside local teachers, providing in class support, which may include, subject reinforcement, supporting small groups and or individuals and providing one to one teaching.  Although often from challenging backgrounds, the young people who you will be working with possess an incredible appetite and desire to learn and your support will ensure their needs are met as you make a valuable contribution to not only them but also the school and the wider community as a whole. How will I make a difference?

Please note that travel between Fiji and The Cook Islands is not included but we are able to advise you on your options and costs involved.
