Looking to do something worthwhile on your gap year? With Real Gap Experience, volunteering could take you around the world - and you could do anything from teaching, to childcare to building.
We work closely with underprivileged communities all over the world, aiming to provide them with a form of sustainable development by either teaching the younger generation, or by building houses and developing the community. All of the hard work our customers put in has been incredible so far, and we want you to join us!
Volunteer with children, in underprivildeged communities or coach sports to kids abroad. Gain valuable work experience whilst making a difference on our medical programmes. If animals are your thing then volunteer at one of our conservation & wildlife programmes or if you're a hands-on kind of person then one of our building projects could suit you - we really do have a volounteer project to suit everyone!
Our most popular volunteering experiences! Maximise your skills, immerse yourself in a new culture and play a rewarding role in a welcoming community!
Whether you have one or twelve weeks to spare, volunteering abroad can be a life changing experience for the volunteer, and incredibly beneficial to an underprivileged community too
Teaching jobs abroad are amazing experiences, and at Real Gap Experience we offer paid and voluntary placements all over the world.
