Taking a Gap Year

Taking a gap year can be the perfect opportunity to travel the world and take time out to help you focus upon your return. As a career break or break from education, taking a gap year allows you to explore your interests or discover new ones, and gives you a new perspective on the world.

By volunteering on your gap year you’re also able to give your time away meaning; return home knowing you’ve made a valuable contribution to the global community, whether working in wildlife conservation, community development, or any number of projects Frontier has to offer.

A gap year is also the perfect way to add depth to your résumé as it demonstrates yourself as resourceful, adaptable, and a proactive global citizen. Taking a gap year can boost start your career as well as leave you with skills and memories you’ll treasure for a lifetime.

Gap Year Activities

Teaching English, wildlife conservation, raising healthcare awareness, gaining dive and field safari qualifications, internships, sports coaching, humanitarian work, the list of what you could do on your gap year is practically endless. What you do on your gap year is up to you, and is truly an opportunity to develop your skills and interests, share your passions, and learn from new, exciting cultures.

As with much of life you get out of a gap year what you put in, so expect to be challenged, but be assured the value of taking a gap year as you learn leadership skills and gain self-confidence, all whilst making a difference to underprivileged communities and vulnerable ecosystems.

Gap Year Destinations

Whether you choose your destination before or after you decide what you’d like to do, part of the excitement of taking a gap year is taking the opportunity to travel. Wherever you choose you’ll be fully immersed into new and vibrant cultures, learning ancient traditions and alongside seeing modern cities.

Travel down Central America into the Amazonian countries of South America; venture across the Pacific and up Australasia into South Asia; cross the Indian Ocean and visit exotic East Africa or travel the Garden Route between Cape Town and Port Elizabeth before heading across Europe home.

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 volunteer advisors will call you right back.
