About The Australian Group Travel Co.

The Australian Group Travel Company creates journeys for Change Makers. Being relentlessly optimistic about young people, the team at The AGTC are backing them to achieve great things. Because of this, they work exclusively with school groups.

Their unique Change Makers’ Journeys are about globally connecting students to new opportunities, experiences, people and ideas. These journeys are designed to equip students to become the innovators, leaders and entrepreneurs who will shape and change our world.

Change Makers’ Journeys incorporate 4 essential elements:

  • World Class Learners – students’ classroom learning comes to life when core subject material is transformed into real life experiences that are interactive, relevant, thought provoking and unbelievably great fun.

  • Hands On Humanity – students engage in sustainable community development projects that foster cross cultural collaboration, nurture empathy and awareness, and build bridges of friendship.

  • Adopt A Digger – students walk in the footsteps of our Anzac heroes and in doing so they gain a profound respect for our diggers and a sense of obligation to live meaningful lives to honour their sacrifices.

  • Global Initiatives – students are inspired by unique opportunities to learn from some of the most successful & purposeful innovators, entrepreneurs and businesses in the world.

We became a B Corp so that we could work within a community of like-minded businesses and people who we think are shining examples of the change we seek. We are excited to walk amongst giants!

Our goal is to introduce high school communities – students, parents & teachers - to the world of B Corps. We believe you’re never too young to embrace the concept of using business as a force for good, and the earlier we sow the seeds the sooner we’ll reap the harvest.

The Change We Seek®

The Australian Group Travel Company seeks to partner with teachers to influence and shape the education and career pathways of young Australians and by doing so, to equip them to lead rewarding lives of purpose and prosperity.
