Summer Volunteering in Fiji
Looking for a summer that you’ll always cherish? Hate the thought of just lying on a beach for a few weeks? Yes, great news – we are thrilled you have found us! Take a break from normality and throw yourself into a challenging and adventurous summer program to the heart of the Fiji Islands. A summer expedition with Think Pacific is a once in a lifetime adventure which means you can make a real contribution to the lives of Fijian children whilst experiencing an entirely different way of life. Does stepping out of your comfort zone and exploring one of the most beautiful and remote places on earth sound better than a package holidays or backpacking with the crowds? Wonderful. It’s the project your meaningful summer was made for.
Hear Callum talk about how life-changing his expedition was him. Also, how much the projects is as much the volunteers learning as well as the children.
Our most popular project. A huge expedition! You’ll be amazed by how much you learn and how much we achieve over the month in Fiji. You’ll return home having inspired children, gained a Fijian family, experienced island life and with stories you’ll be talking about for years.
Our most challenging and rewarding program! This means deeper connections, bigger rewards and huge immersion into Fijian culture. Our two month summer projects are so often such a life changing experience for our volunteers, and we have very limited places available.
Had the most amazing time in Fiji, what a way to have my first trip abroad!! I’ll never forget this paradise or its people, Fiji is now my home away from home and I can’t wait till the day I come back to see my Fijian family.
My Think Pacific project, submersed in the Fijian culture, was one of the most inspirational and five weeks of my life. I met the most incredible friends and I now have a beautiful Fijian family on the other side of the world that I will never forget.
Whether you have a passion for education, sports or the arts, there is a role for you in Fiji. Explore the ways our volunteers use their summers to make a positive difference as we inspire and uplift children in Fiji.
Spend your summer supporting basic education in rural schools in Fiji and helping children improve literacy and numeracy.
Forget a normal holidays and spend a month or two coaching sports and inspiring children in a remote village in Fiji during summer.

Coach Netball with primary school children & and play yourself with the village teams. Summer is peak netball season.
Prepare and deliver daily kindergarten sessions as we support early years education and create new programmes in rural areas.
Gap year students, school leavers, university students, graduates, young career breakers and people with a desire to fill their summer holidays with something so much more enriching and adventurous than two weeks in the sun! Our projects are for people who want to see the ‘real Fiji’, make new friends, challenge themselves and make a difference. You’ll need a desire to experience back to basics conditions and live as local people do, rather than relaxing by the hotel pool. You’ll need to embrace a new culture and roll up your sleeves to contribute to something bigger. The opportunity to have an extended break from day to day life doesn’t last forever and we know people regret it, if they let it slip away, especially once the big climb up the career ladder begins. Whether you are due a career break, are waiting to start university, wanting to make the most of a long university holiday or taking an adventure after graduation – take your chance to do something extraordinary! Volunteer in Fiji with Think Pacific and our program will test you, develop your skills and provide rewards, pride and unique memories that will stay with you long after your summer has ended.
We only do team projects. Join a team of up to 20 like-minded students and instantly become part of a new group of friends as you share something special together. The bonds you make on your program will last a life-time.
Volunteering on your summer break is one of the most purposeful and rewarding things you can do. Our expeditions are partnered with the Fijian Government which means you are supporting national aims and objectives.
Our programs are certainly no holiday. It’s a real challenge. It’s been said that life begins at the edge our comfort zone. You’ll come home with more confidence, new leadership skills and a greater global understanding.
Trek jungle rainforests, visit remote waterfalls, snorkel the reefs or set sail for the outer islands. If you’re looking for the ultimate adventure on your summer break Fiji is waiting to be explored.
Our volunteer projects are guided with 24/7 care and dedication. Fiji is all we know and love. From our experienced leaders who guide your project each day to our management team in Fiji and the UK, you’ll receive unrivalled support.
So many of our volunteers state their experiences in Fiji are ‘life changing’ and they meet people they’ll stay in touch with forever. You’ll broaden your horizons and forever be proud that you accomplished something so unique.
