Why Fijian Youth?
Equipping Fiji’s youth today will ensure the country thrives tomorrow.
We value the role Fiji’s youth will play in the country for years to come. From local issues to global challenges, we believe Fiji’s youth can be the example other countries look up to.
Having volunteer programs that support and celebrate Fiji’s youth is deeply rooted in Think Pacific’s core aims.

Experiential, cross-cultural learning will help provide Fiji’s youth with valuable skills and personal development opportunities. This will help boost employability as well as highlighting the role they can play in a global community.
From agriculture, to business, to politics; there is opportunity for all of Fiji’s youth – we want to help explore all that is possible. This journey will encapsulate personal development, leadership skills and self-awareness.
This is what motivates us to keep challenging ourselves and keep pushing our programs in what they can achieve.
The family that I lived with were so lovely and we are still in contact now I’m back in England. I still refer to them as mum and dad and talk about my little Fijian brother constantly. The children in the village were so happy to see you, play with you and hug you; you were never left alone but I loved this. It was a blessing to be made so welcome by the whole community.
Think Pacific were fantastic in integrating the volunteers into village life. Being in a rural community, I truly felt like I was a part of their family and daily activities due to the welcoming and open atmosphere. The month spent in Fiji has truly stuck with me daily through the life lessons learnt by the Fijians and my team. Think Pacific make a real effort in ensuring that there is a team bond built to ensure that the aims of the project are fulfilled but also that you as a volunteer have the best time. Having no modern amenities such as phones truly meant that you got to know your team inside out. Being in Fiji and experiencing such a different culture and way of life has shaped how I see modern day. Fijians are truly the most welcoming and happiest individuals despite the struggles they face daily.
Our projects are designed to encourage new ideas, new approaches and new ways of thinking.
This is to challenge stereotypes and redefine what Fiji’s youth can accomplish.

Our projects encourage Fiji’s youth to take ownership and responsibility for their future, their country’s future and the future of a connected, global community.
Helping Fiji’s youth develop the skills and experiences needed for jobs and careers is a key element of our commitment to Fiji.
