Student Explore Australia

Students Explore Australia Pty Ltd is on a mission to connect young people with nature, as a way to improve their wellbeing. As a member of our team, your direct mission is to contribute to this core purpose. 

Working at Students Explore Australia is not for everyone, but it is for those who believe in our purpose and see themselves fitting in with our core values (as mentioned below). We take our company culture pretty seriously, making sure everyone feels part of the team. We celebrate wins together, and push each other to improve in our professional and personal lives. Our team either work from an office in Everard Park or from their own homes remotely – or of course out in the field when we deliver nature-based programs.  

Why be Part of Our Team?

  • You’ll get to see first hand the positive impact you have on young people’s lives.
  • Our entire team of fulltime staff enjoy an all expenses paid yearly retreat in South East Asia for 1 week, where our whole team comes together to focus mindset and leadership training, as well as our business’ direction and team bonding (happening late March 2024, on Siargao Island).
  • You’ll have 2 hours of paid learning time per week for all fulltime staff
  • You’ll have a professional development plan in place after your first month, if you choose to have one
  • Enjoy a fairly niche workplace culture that includes team meditations on Monday and Friday, weekly recognition by peers and much more!

Our Core Values

1. We strive for good vibes everyday (there’s a science behind this)
2. We are hungry to achieve our personal best
3. We are adaptable to change
4. We are highly organised and disciplined
5. We are optimists, with can-do attitudes

Ever wanted to join our programs and help young people connect with nature? We have opportunities available right now, for people who wish to volunteer on our programs!

  • We pay for all your expenses, entry passes, food and of course you get to go to all the beautiful places we visit, together with our staff and our explorers!
  • Generally, we only have 1 volunteer per program, and you won’t be directly looking after any campers – you will simply be a helping hand around camp.
  • Must have or be willing to get Working With Children Check and First Aid Certifications
  • We value students who are studying in relevant fields, or anyone with relevant experience and a passion for the outdoors. Not essential, but a bonus if you have a LR License or above.


Simply email [email protected] with a 1 page letter explaining why you would like to volunteer, and include anything you believe would make you a great fit! 🙂
