Each afternoon you will have the opportunity to step off the beaten track and explore your surroundings through our expert local guidance. Trek to remote waterfalls, visit uninhibited islands, snorkel with exotic marine life and much more.
Your final evening will be a celebration to commemorate your achievements during the course of your project. There will be tearful goodbyes but also pride in reflection of what you have achieved during your time overseas. Before that you will be treated to a farewell dinner and participate in a awards ceremony to celebrate success.
After a program debrief we will ask you to complete an evaluation based on your experience with Travel Teacher. Here you will recall the incredible memories which you have made during your time in The South Pacific.
