July Pre-Departure Orientation Course

July 3 - July 11

In 1961, Palms Australia held its first ever Pre-Departure Orientation Course for participants in Palms assignments abroad about to head into their overseas placements. Since then Palms Australia’s expert led training has become nationally renowned as an essential element of effective development assignments.

Palms Australia’s close partnerships with overseas communities allow us to respond to their unique requests. We work closely with our partners to connect them with qualified and experienced Australians who commit to share their knowledge and skills while living in the communities they serve. Over the last 60 years, this has proven an effective model for achieving sustainable, community owned development.

Over 1550 Australians, at 103 Orientation Courses, have been prepared to engage in these challenging cross cultural relationships to build understanding, acceptance and care, and provide the assistance requested, across 41 countries in Africa, Asia and the Pacific.
