Benefits for Students

Friends of Gallipoli believe in preparing young people. Our world is becoming a global community that holds new challenges and responsibilities for the future. Through education projects and travel opportunities like the 2013 Youth Tour, Friends of Gallipoli is committed to building bridges between nations and equipping our youth for a brave new world.

Travel to Gallipoli helps young Australian gain skills and perspective through wider educational and cultural opportunities. Among the advantages are:

  • The chance to experience another culture, meet its people and learn its history
  • Personal growth and independence that comes through travel and new environments
  • Gaining specialist knowledge and unique perspectives from all sides of the conflict
  • Setting and achieving common goals (like fundraising to support the exchange tour)
  • Experience the profoundly moving Anzac Day Dawn Service at North Beach, Gallipoli
  • Acquire first-hand view of leadership, heroism and sacrifice in a unique historical context

In the longer term, Youth Tours contribute valuable social and career skills. They experience group dynamics, gain sensitivity to others and learn to celebrate difference.

Friends of Gallipoli well-designed travel programs aim to harness these advantages and ensure both Australian and Turkish young people benefit from the bounty of international friendship.
