We all know that if there’s one thing this world needs more of right now, it’s a little love.

That’s why we’ve partnered with American Apparel and the incredible education charity Pencils of Promise to bring budding activists the chance to win a sponsored humanitarian field trip to Guatemala to support equal education in deprived communities. With all your travel and accommodation paid for by us, you can afford to do something truly special with your summer break: learn, grow and see the world while making a real difference in the lives of these deserving children.

We’re your biggest

Here at UNiDAYS, we believe in students—you’re the future and you deserve a voice! We want to give you unique opportunities to gain some valuable life experiences, whether that’s internships with our awesome brands or rewarding volunteering challenges, like this. We want you to have the confidence to chase your dreams and do some super cool stuff—let’s face it, that isn’t always easy when you’re a broke college student. So, take a leap and do something fantastic for a worthy cause!
