GAP Year Abroad
The International Volunteer Travel offers an exciting gap year program for young people who are looking for a break after secondary school, or college students who just need some time off. The International Volunteer Travel offers placements in several countries in many different areas of interest. Participants will discover new things about life in other countries, and actually learn more about themselves.
SoÖwhatís It all about?
Taking a gap year overseas is great for learning about different cultures and gaining valuable knowledge that will help you later on.
You will interact with many nice people, and make some great friends. These relationships will last a lifetime, and will give you insight and understanding of different cultures.
What Could I do?
International Volunteer Travel offers several programs. Gap Year abroad opportunities are available in all areas of internship and volunteer placement in our program. In addition, you can combine your year out abroad with our Adventure, Wildlife work or the Spanish study abroad program.
From these programs you will choose a project placement. There are many to consider, including teaching, working with domestic or even wild animals, working with children, Christian mission work, HIV and AIDS awareness, medical work, or nature conservation. You can also do reforestation, community development, working with women in prisons, business enterprises, children dance and drama, or working with artisan groups.
So many opportunities! Now all you have to do is choose.
