The Duke of Edinburgh’s International Award

Rustic Pathways is a Registered Activity Provider (RAP) for the The Duke of Edinburgh’s International Award. We support schools and individual students in fulfilling some of the requirements for the bronze, silver and gold awards.

Adventurous Journeys

Whether you’re planning an expedition or an exploration, Rustic has you covered. With extensive operations in 19 countries, an Adventurous Journey (AJ) with Rustic could have you trekking in the Himalayas, exploring the impacts of climate change in Fiji, researching girls’ education in Cambodia, or traversing Fraser Island. Select from a scheduled departure, or organise a custom AJ for your school.

Service

Our Australia Community Impact Manager can assist students in connecting with their local community to serve others. Rustic has an extensive network of community partners across Australia who are always looking for volunteers to support them on a regular basis.

Residential Projects

For gold award participants, expand your horizons on a Pathfinders program by travelling with a group of students from across Australia. Live in a homestay with a Fijian family, or stay onboard Rustic’s boat in Cambodia to build a house for a floating village. Make friends for life while sharing a purposeful experience!
