6 Reasons Why You Should Spend Your University Summer With Think Pacific
A Truly Life-Changing Adventure
Contribution
Across our university volunteer projects last summer we saw a 40% increase in literacy and a 600% increase in sports and extracurricular activities for the children we worked with. With TP you really do put your university skills to the best possible use!
Challenge
Expand your comfort zone by throwing yourself into a “back-to-basics” island experience as you live with a Fijian family at the heart of a traditional village and sample a simpler way of life. Students return with more understanding of poverty issues and of the difference they can make.
Learn
Swap university exams and course work for adventure and Fijian culture! We find that students develop greater global awareness and learn about a unique culture and way of life as you live and work with local people in the remotest corner of the earth.
Experience
Gain hands on experience and transfer your degree studies and extracurricular passions as you teach, mentor or coach. sports to children. The experience is something students treasure as you become responsible for inspiring and encouraging children to succeed.
Skills
Develop teamwork, leadership & communication skills. We deliver aims for the Fijian Government (The Ministries of Health, Education & Sports), which contribute towards national targets. This is something to shout about to employers when you return, developing your CV and expertise.
Memories
Create memories and friendships that last a life time. Most students join our project on their own & return with a new group of amazing friends. We love the fact that TP becomes a highlight of people's time at university and something they always look back upon with so much pride.
