All projects of EST promote a practical approach to social outreach.
In the local community, this starts with young adults collaborating with other agencies, such as rest homes, refugee and disability bodies, to undertake practical welfare work.
Further afield, EST has acquired experience in organising voluntary service projects or work camps to communities locally and in the Pacific. The early service projects date back to 1990.The aims of the work camps are threefold:
- to provide welfare or developmental assistance to a community in need
- to contribute to a team-based project, and
- to learn about a different cultural heritage.
Work camps are typically 2 to 3 weeks in duration and require volunteers to pay their own way, as well as raise funds for the project.
