The Arika group of programs seek to match the capabilities and aspirations of people from all over the world, regardless of age or background, to achieve a common shared experience that will endure well past their time at the property. At the core of the programs is the recognition that everyone has something to both contribute and learn.
The Arika Mentor Program (“AMP") can be structured as either a short-term or long-term activity, with Mentors typically dedicated to a single project that reflects their interests and expertise.
Mentors are typically self-accommodating and their time with the program serves as a small part of an overall journey throughout Northern Australia.
The underlying premise of the program is that the travelling community has a vast range of skills and experience that when matched with willing young workers in a supportive environment will, provide significant mutual benefit.
The Arika Volunteer Program (“AVP”) typically runs over a two week “stint” and provides opportunities for travelling volunteers to participate in multiple projects that are aligned with their personal aspirations and interests. Volunteers are provided with quality accommodation and meals, personal protective equipment and training, and are treated as guests for one of the days of their stint on a fully hosted trip into the Bungle Bungles.
Volunteers may also quality for longer term, complementary work opportunities should they wish to participate further in paid work activities.
