Community Service

Speaking English unlocks advancement opportunities for Balinese youth. Go off the beaten path in this tourist hot spot, interacting with many of the villages and impoverished communities that are overlooked by most visitors. Bali’s education system is one area that needs real attention, and you can make a difference during your time here. Volunteer at an English camp and create unforgettable bonds with your students. Design creative lesson plans and share crucial language lessons that can unlock new opportunities for young people on the island. Through community service, you’ll get to know the locals while getting a rare peek into the daily life of the Balinese.

Immersive Learning

Surrounded by beautiful beaches, lush green terraced rice paddies and intricate temples, opportunities for discovery are plentiful on the island. You’ll be interacting daily with a culture that celebrates sustainable, communal living. Get to know what living on the island is really like. Learn about environmental issues during your scuba excursion and discuss problems facing modern-day rice farmers. You’ll even get to enjoy a traditional dinner and conversation with the Prince of Ubud at the Royal Palace! Try your hand at the gamelan drum and legong dance and participate in ancient ceremonies to truly absorb the island’s spiritual culture.

Adventure

True adventure in Bali is tied to living harmoniously with the natural world. As you discover more of the island, you’ll see firsthand why its such a beloved destination for global travelers. Learn to scuba dive and explore the coral reef in the stunning Pacific. Whitewater raft through lush vegetation and surf the Southern Bali coastline, one of the world’s top surfing destinations. Then, spend one night at an eco-camp on a cashew farm. It’s more than just a nut farm—this is a social enterprise that employs women of farming families and teaches the community about sustainability. And don’t forget to explore nearby island temples that make Bali world-famous.
