Immerse yourself in traditional Samoan village life by joining our Care & Community Short-term Special. Become a part of the community by helping raise and educate local children while working on ongoing community projects that provide long-term benefits for everyone in the area.

You’ll give local teachers at kindergartens, schools and care centres a helping hand by looking after and caring for the children. You’ll also have the opportunity to put any skills or interests you have to use. Whether it’s arts and crafts or teaching games and songs to the children, your suggestions and contribution will be welcome.

Your involvement in the community doesn’t end there. You’ll live with a local host family, and be involved in all aspects of village life, from meetings with the chief to celebrating important events. You’ll also be involved in ongoing projects, from maintaining community buildings to helping with local sustainability initiatives to joining a local drama group. On weekends you’ll tour the island and the beautiful coastline for which Samoa is famous.

This placement is fully researched, safety audited and risk assessed in accordance with the British Standard BS8848 for the Adventure Travel Sector.
