Finding Your Tribe

Published 03/11/2019

As humans we all seek to connect with others who share our values and beliefs.

To connect with like-minded people.

To have a sense of belonging.

To be a part of a community.

To be a part of something bigger than ourselves.

In it’s simplest form, to find our tribe. 🙏 🌍

Here at Think Pacific, we believe in community and we believe in the value of finding your tribe.

In a world where we can “connect” with anyone via social media and instant messages, something doesn’t feel quite right. There’s a lack of meaningful connections, that forge long lasting relationships.

And it’s these meaningful connections that shape who we are.

So instead of packing up a bag and heading into the distant horizon like a lone wolf to go to “find yourself”, we argue that finding your tribe and embarking on an adventure with like-minded people is the best way to go.

You’ll share experiences together, forge lasting friendships and benefit from the companionship that a team environments offers.

Benefits of Volunteering as a Team

  • You get to meet people from around the world that share your interests. 
  • You’ll share experiences with others and have people to reminisce about the project with. 
  • You’ll learn from other volunteers. 
  • You’ll help and support other volunteers.
  • You’ll challenge and push each other to achieve more.
  • You’ll better develop skills like teamwork and leadership.
  •  You’ll genuinely make lifelong friendships.
  • You won’t get lonely or bored. 
  • You can achieve more as a group and have a bigger impact. 

So, as the evidence stacks up pretty abundantly that volunteering as part of a team is the best way to go, the question becomes, is your tribe waiting for you in Fiji with Think Pacific?
