Students Addressing Global Issues One Step at A Time

At World Youth Adventures, we have always advocated for responsible travel and our programs are tailored to benefit the host community and minimise our impact on the environment. We train and employ local staff, engage local suppliers and assist in the development of sustainable local businesses. To further promote responsible travel, we have also tailored our programs to help the United Nations address global issues and achieve the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals by 2030.

About the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (UN SDGs)
The UN SDGs aim to achieve a better and more sustainable future for all. They address global issues, including those related to poverty, inequality, climate, environmental degradation and more. They are interconnected and they ensure we leave no one behind. The United Nations aims to achieve all 17 goals by 2030.

Creating Global Citizens
Youths are the building blocks of our nation and they are our future hope. It is important for us to provide them with a holistic education that includes experiential and service learning, which compliments your school’s curriculum. This makes them aware of the importance of sustainable development, which they can then apply it in their lives and in future travel, becoming a responsible global citizen.

Supporting the UN SDGs
Our community projects are catered for students and are designed to address the UN SDGs. Students will learn about the different UN SDGs during the project while having the opportunity to help the host country they are in. Having a hands on experience will further reinforce what they have learnt and they will also get to experience another culture, building their cultural awareness.

Available Programs
We have numerous service learning programs and they can also be customised to suit your school’s learning objectives. Each program addresses a few UN SDGs and it can include an element of physical activity, as well as time spent to help a community in need. We aim to achieve all UN SDGs through our programs.
