Global Gap Year Abroad

Volunteer your way around the world on our epic global gap group trip

2020 has been an immensely challenging year for travel. Unfortunately, this means we couldn't run our annual Global Gap Year Abroad program as we have for many years. 

However, we are thrilled to announce our new six-week Gap Semester Program in East Africa.

This is the latest section of our recently introduced Going Beyond series

 

Is a gap year abroad in 2021 right for me?

If you are a student interested in the opportunity to:

 

  • Take a break and explore the world before heading to university
  • Use your gap year to decide what you want to study and discover what field is a good fit for you
  • Become more focused and grow as a person through travel
  • Get a deeper insight into global issues and challenges

 

Then our 2021 Global Gap Year program is for you. It’s a way for you to do something worthwhile and exciting before taking the step to higher education.

 

You’ll get to travel the world and experience different cultures. As a volunteer, you’ll work to address the needs of local communities while immersing yourself in a new way of life. You’ll gain hands-on experience in a range of different fields, from Conservation to Childcare.

 

You don’t need any previous experience to join our Global Gap program. You’ll be supervised by local staff and receive a comprehensive introduction for each placement.

 

Gap year travel with a group provides you with a great support system and you’ll make friends for life. Our staff are also available to help 24/7 in each country, so that you can enjoy a hassle-free time abroad.

 

This trip takes place on fixed dates between September and May each year, and is open to all gap year students looking for a once-in-a-lifetime experience.
