Top 10 Volunteering Trips
With so many incredible volunteering options lying under our travelly belt, it's no surprise that volunteering abroad is one of the most popular choices when it comes to gap year travel!
We work closely with projects that have either been established by locals or NGOs (Non-Government Organisations) to enable they grow sustainably. Here at Real Gap Experience we supply the projects with what they need the most, helping hands - and our dedicated volunteers spend their time adapting to the needs of the community. You may only be one person, but by volunteering with us you'll make up part of our global support network, and by ensuring the constant flow of volunteers we can provide a beneficial experience for both the community and the volunteer.
Whether you're after the perfect way to give something back or if you want to top up your funds as you go, you can choose from a whole load of different volunteering options, from conservation work abroad to childcare to teaching.
