Gap Years with Frontier

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 by volunteering and travelling 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.

This can be especially beneficial to first time travellers – you can join an ethical adventure trail where you will be with a group of likeminded people and combine backpacking with volunteering. By 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.

With adventure travel and volunteering projects in destinations around the globe, Frontier can help make your fantasy a reality. Start planning your gap year today by clicking the ‘Apply Now’ link and one of our gap year advisors will call you right back to answer any questions and help find you the perfect meaningful adventure.
