Overland Travel Adventures hosts school groups interested in expanding the curriculum and in giving students a broader world view.  The school programs focus on community development projects but can include some sight-seeing along the way.  Students can volunteer at one project for the entire duration of their stay or visit a number of projects for shorter periods of time. 
The purpose of the school programs is to give students hands-on experience in development work and to expose them to the types of labour their peers in other countries may experience every day.  Working physically side by side with local students will build camaraderie, empathy and understanding of the other culture.  It is a chance for both sides to learn.
The accommodation on these trips is usually camping with full participation from the students for cooking and cleaning.  Living outdoors provides an additional personal challenge to most students, giving them the opportunity to grow into capable, confident and tolerant young adults.
