THE CONCEPT

A SCHOOLIES ALTERNATIVE

Schoolies Revolution is a 3-week trip to a developing country or region that is all about celebrating well and making a difference. It is a short-term mission trip that looks to impact the world and be exposed to the issues of poverty, while having a distinct schoolies flavour that emphasises fun, making friends and new experiences.

FOR THEM

On the trips, we get alongside local organisations that are making a difference. We seek to impact and influence the communities we visit, encourage the people working there and invest in their projects with our time and resources. Whoever comes on the trip to use their gifts and talents to serve the people we meet and to discover how they can impact the world when they return home.

FOR YOU

A schoolies experience like no other, that will have a massive impact on your life! Not only will you have a stack of fun, you will be able to make some great friends and dive into a new culture and country. Above all, you get a chance to see the challenges of poverty with your own eyes, be empowered to help and learn from the way people live in these countries.

 

TURNING AROUND A GENERATION

This is our vision, our heartbeat and essentially what drives us: to turn around a generation. We seek to do this not only here in Australia, but also in third-world countries. We believe this generation has so much potential and want to do whatever we can to help unlock that.

2014 Team
Starting in 2010, we promoted as a couple local Christian schools. Before we knew it, we had around 22 students signed up for a trip to Uganda at the end of 2011. Promotion for 2012 was increased and we took a team to Uganda, with 21 students and 30 people involved in the trip, meaning we were maxed out! After two very successful years, we felt like it was time to take a step forward. So we embarked on running a second trip. So in 2013 we ran two schoolies trips, one to Uganda and another to India & Sri Lanka, with a total of 18 students. Now in 2014, we head on three trips, adding one to the Solomon Islands in partnership with Soul Survivor and we have 32 students involved this year, with over 80 showing interest for 2015!

THE TESTIMONIES

The missions work and just seeing the poverty first-hand gave me such a new perspective. I was confronted by their incredible poverty, but saw such love in their hearts. I was challenged, inspired and motivated to change who I was and the country where I came from. Schoolies in Africa gave me so much life experience in such a short time.

Being able to make a difference in a part of the world, however big or small, was incredibly rewarding and I can’t think of a better way I could have spent my schoolies.
