BUNAC was founded in an era of change. Kennedy was in the White House, Civil Rights Movements were on the streets, and change was in the air. Two students understood that crossing borders had the power to break down barriers and build cultural connections. They chartered a plane, started running trips for other students and BUNAC was born.
60 years later, this pioneering spirit has never been truer for our travellers. We belong to a generation who want to buck trends – not tick bucket lists. Who want to see the world with a purpose – whether that’s earning money on a working holiday visa, inspiring young people at a summer camp, or getting work experience on an overseas internship.
And now, it’s your turn. Go BUNAC, go be you.
Our customers are genuinely like friends to us, and their trips are as familiar to us as our own. In fact, all our team travelled before they worked for us. What can we say, we’re honestly like a family. Meet some of the team behind your trip.
Adam is our original Captain America. Before hanging up his cape to work for BUNAC, he did Summer Camp USA eight times, Intern USA for 18 months and even moved to the States full-time to work as camp director at Camp Sloane YMCA. Just like Captain America, he’s strong and dependable – leading the team, solving problems and putting out fires. He’s also a black belt in martial arts. Roll over Steve Rogers, there’s a new superhero in town.
Working abroad can be overwhelming. But go be you, we’ve got this. Visas, jobs, internship placements, travel planning, accommodation, arrival support... our team help take care of it.
Travelling will 100% shape how you see the world, but there may be challenges along the way. We’re honest about the thrills and the spills. And if you need us, we’re there 24/7.
This isn’t just a job for us. Yes, we’re a profit-making business, but we don’t believe in exploring at the expense of exploiting either our customers or the communities we visit.
