High School

ISV's High School Program is a unique 18 day program for high school students that combines volunteering and adventure travel to Thailand, Costa Rica or the Dominican Republic. The ISV High School Program was first launched in 2007 in Australia, provides an opportunity for students to make a difference to communities in need while they learn about sustainable development, responsible tourism and cross-cultural appreciation in a team environment that builds character and teaches compassion. Students live, travel and learn in another country whilst making a positive contribution to communities and environments through volunteering.

High School students aged 15 - 18 will travel with a purpose on a life-changing cultural experience that encourages leadership, teambuilding, experiential learning and above all, a sense of giving back. The ISV program combines conservation, recreation, education and community development into the experience of a lifetime. Since 2002, over 30,000 students have travelled abroad with ISV to volunteer and make a difference during their summer break. As a high school student, you can join ISV and add to the more than two million hours of incredible volunteer work already contributed!
