Our gap year programs are uniquely co-located within communities and wildlife areas, away from the main tourist circuit, enabling all of our gap year volunteers to become part of the local community and experience complete cultural immersion as a guest, not a tourist!
Gap Year Programs

You can be guaranteed to get involved in a wide range of award-winning ongoing community development and wildlife conservation volunteering projects throughout your time. You can choose how long you want to travel for; our trips range from 2 weeks to 3 months.
If one country isn’t enough, you can add another one of our programs to make the most of your gap experience. Our gap year programs include four main elements; Community, Wildlife, Environment and Adventure.
Working on projects from Monday to Friday leaves you with evenings and weekends to be part of avibrant social scene with plenty of weekend excursions, parties and nights out to make the most of your new friendships with other gap year volunteers. There are plenty of adventure activities to challenge you and keep you entertained – from mountain trekking to scuba diving and kite surfing, you will be hard pushed to fit it all in!
Most itineraries will involve you staying in several of our locations as each place has a purpose which is to either support community or wildlife projects, give you a place to chill on the beach, or act as home for your wildlife viewing.
