Since 2004, Inspired Adventures has raised over $23 million for incredible causes. As the leading adventure fundraising agency in Australia and New Zealand, our charity challenge events raise significant funds, build community awareness and inspire lifelong advocacy.
Thorough our Inspired Learning Program we create life changing service-learning adventures for Australian students that shift their thinking, expand their worldview and inspire them to become informed and active global citizens.
HOW IT WORKS
The Inspired Learning Program supports young people to become successful learners, confident and creative individuals, and active and informed citizens.
Together with your school, Inspired Adventures and your host charity will develop an adventure that addresses existing classroom curriculum and supports students in the development of essential skills through real-life experiences.
Your program is offered in three phases, typically rolled out over two years:
Phase 1: Learn, prepare and fundraise
The pre-departure phase runs for five months and focuses on educating selected students about the charity, the country they will visit and the purpose of their adventure.
During this phase, students are supported in developing and implementing their fundraising plans and coached to reach their fundraising target.
Phase 2: Experience and reflection
In this phase students will embark on their adventure, accompanied by an Inspired Adventures Team Leader.
A key outcome of this phase is daily facilitated reflection about what the students are experiencing as part of their adventure. Students are encouraged to actively participate in the reflection process, keep a journal of their experiences and discuss what they are expecting of the coming days.
Phase 3: Realise, share and sustain
This phase links three main topics: How have I changed? What can I teach my peers? and How can I offer ongoing support to the people and communities I have visited?
Following their adventure, students will be tasked with leading your school’s continued learning about the community they visited through structured post-adventure activities and promote ongoing philanthropic efforts within your school community.
