Gap Year Volunteer
Don’t just travel during your gap year. Do real travel that matters to you. We believe that life is short so making the most of our time on this planet is important. If you want a rewarding, meaningful travel experience with a difference, whilst touching lives and exploring new cultures along the way, our gap year volunteering will change the way think, change the way you view the world, and provide you with new skills for life.
Designed to broaden horizons, deepen connections and give you invaluable hands-on experience in various vocations and fields, our unique gap year programs will help you grow in more ways than one. On a basic level, you will gain interpersonal skills and other transferable skillsets to enhance your employability whilst on a deeper level, you will gain new insights into the world and develop compassion and understanding.
Most of our gap year programs are a minimum of two weeks and you can combine travel and volunteering in countries like India, Nepal, Cambodia, Bali, Sri Lanka and Thailand. We also work in South Africa and Mozambique.
With emphasis on community living and cultural immersion, our programs allow full integration and include project travel, plus volunteers will have the opportunity to take part in local activities and cultural classes to enhance their travel experience.
We currently offer gap year volunteering programs across India, Thailand, South Africa, Nepal, Bali, Cambodia and Sri Lanka, and each program offers flexible start dates to fit in with your gap year travel plans. Teach English abroad to work with children, get medical work experience by working in disabled care, or assist in our women’s empowerment programs, go diving for marine conservation or work with rangers for wildlife conservation, do sports coaching, become a medical and healthcare assistant and more.
All our Gap year programs are available for students in Spring, Summer and Winter Break. You can choose the set 2-4 week options or come for longer durations or even mix programs and locations.
Why Volunteer on your Gap Year?
Live on the beach for turtle conservation, experience multicultural life in an Indo Tibetan community in North India, or walk the path of lions and leopards in the Eastern Cape of South Africa.
Enhance Your Skills
Whether you choose a career program or you volunteer for personal growth, our projects can help you develop new skills whilst honing existing ones.
Live, eat, sleep like a local and get fully integrated into the local community. Our passion for community living and socialising will help you expand your mind and knowledge in so many ways.
Spend your evenings and weekends travelling, exploring, and soaking up the unbelievable views whilst helping communities along the way. This is gap year travel with a difference.
GAP YEAR TRAVEL, THE RESPONSIBLE WAY
If you’re tired of the academic grind, not sure why you’re going to college or what you’ll do when you get there, if you yearn to explore far-away places or a dig deeper into a career that interests you- then perhaps this is the time to consider taking a gap year between high school and college. Taking time off before college gives you the gift of time to learn about two essential things: yourself and the world around you.
