If you’re young and into travelling and exploring the world around you, BeKiwi is here for you!
BeKiwi helps you better connect with meaningful travel experiences – including volunteering, travelling sustainably and learning valuable future skills. Get hands-on, have fun and try something new!
BeKiwi was first developed to help international students better connect with ‘real’ New Zealand travel experiences – including the people and the culture.
If you’re an international student or youth traveller, this site is for you! We want to help you discover high-quality experiences so you can better connect with New Zealand, learn valuable new skills and improve your future opportunities.
BeKiwi offers a central hub where you can search for a range of quality experiential learning and travel opportunities across New Zealand.
BeKiwi experiences are all especially designed to help you connect with Kiwis, discover Kiwi culture, learn relevant social and cultural protocols and understand important future skills like leadership and resilience.
Every BeKiwi experience has tangible learning outcomes linked to future skills that have been identified as being critical for success in the 21st century. We all know the world is changing fast and that you need to prepare yourself for what the world will look like in 10, 20 and 30 years. No matter how fast technology advances, skills like leadership, empathy (caring for others) and good communication will be critical.
BeKiwi will become the ‘go to’ for all young travellers all New Zealanders wanting something different, like the opportunity to make a pavlova, help with a beach clean up, take honey from a beehive, bungy jump, design your own t-shirt or sail a yacht in Aotearoa.
We envisage BeKiwi becoming a global showcase of uniquely Kiwi destination experiences that will help young people prepare for their future.
BeKiwi is a new platform that is continuing to grow with new listings added every week. If you’d like to find out more about where we’re heading, we’d love to hear from you.
