Taking a Gap Year

A great way to gain new experiences and skill sets while learning much more about the world and the people and cultures that inhabit it, is with a volunteering or adventure travel experience in your gap year. Having a break and a bit of time out from education will allow you to see the world with fresh eyes and to realise what is valued in your own life.

Why take a gap year?

A gap year can be especially beneficial to first time travellers – you can join an ethical adventure trail where you will be with a group of like minded people and combine backpacking with volunteering.You can learn more about the global issues that different people face and join a larger community that is working towards sustainable solutions. Volunteering as part of a gap year will give you new skills and work experience while being part of a valuable contribution to a community - an experience that will give you a greater understanding of the world and will stay with you forever.
