All AEPL centres promote a practical approach to social outreach.
This starts in the local community, with students collaborating with other entities. The Study Centres may volunteer with groups such as the elderly, refugees, indigenous Australians, the underprivileged, etc.
Further afield, study centres have over 30 years experience in organising voluntary service projects to communities in Australia or abroad.
The aims of these projects are to provide welfare or developmental assistance to a community in need, to contribute to a local project or to learn about a different cultural heritage.
The service projects are typically 2-3 weeks in duration and require volunteers to pay their own way. Fees vary, depending on destination. Recent service projects have been held in Dubbo (NSW), Hobart (TAS), New Zealand, India and the Philippines.
The service projects are organized and run by centres of AEPL. In many cases they are run in conjunction with Reledev, a not-for- profit NGO, accredited with Australian Aid.
