Overview

Journey to the island of Bali, where you'll influence the youth of an indigenous culture and explore the many wonders of the “Island of the Gods.” Even more than its picturesque scenery, the Balinese people are what make this region truly beautiful. Charming and generous, local residents warmly welcome volunteers who can help fill educational gaps for their children. You’ll volunteer at a local school, teaching English and bonding with the community. In the afternoons and evenings, you might hike to a waterfall, hop on a spider boat to catch the sunset, or gather around a bonfire on the beach.

Community Service

Speaking English unlocks advancement opportunities for Balinese youth. In this tourist hotspot, many of the villages and impoverished communities are overlooked, and as a result Bali’s education is one area that needs attention. Volunteer at an English camp and create unforgettable bonds with your students as you design creative lesson plans and share crucial language lessons. Through community service, you’ll get to know the local people and get a rare peek into the daily life of the Balinese.

Hands-On Learning

Surrounded by rugged beaches, lush green rice terraces and intricate temples, you’ll be interacting daily with a culture that celebrates sustainable, communal living. You’ll learn about environmental issues and coral restoration during your scuba excursion, discuss problems facing modern-day rice farmers, and enjoy 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 spiritual culture of the Balinese.

Adventure

Every day in Bali is filled with epic adventures that chart the island from corner to corner. You’ll quickly understand that all adventure here is tied to living harmoniously with the natural world. Learn to scuba dive and explore the coral reef, whitewater raft through lush vegetation, explore temples built to blend in with their exotic backdrops, visit an elephant safari park, and surf the Southern Bali coastline, one of the world’s top surfing destinations.

Lodging

Your Home Base in Bali will be in three locations as you travel around the island during the trip: Ubud, Singaraja and Amed. These fascinating villages have all the comforts of home, but also the distinct essence that draw people from all over the world to witness their serenity, beauty, and power. Your housing will be diverse, from an authentic Balinese family home to a beach bungalow. Students share comfortable, gender-segregated rooms  with roommates, and have access to bathrooms with Western-style toilets and cold-water showers.
