Career Breaks with Frontier USA Career Breaks

Career Breaks

These days, it’s very common to take a career break. This may be a chance to assess which path to take next in life, to gain training for a new career, or to take some time out from a stressful job.

At Frontier, we offer a huge range of volunteering and adventure opportunities, from training to be a scuba diving or skiing instructor, helping out at a deserving local orphanage or medical center, or helping care for orang-utans in Sumatra.

What can I gain from a career break?

With more than 20 years’ experience of managing volunteering and adventure vacation, Frontier can find the perfect career break for you. Perhaps you want to experience life in a different country, or perhaps you want to share your career skills with deserving communities. Our volunteer advisers are skilled at finding the right project, whatever the age of the volunteer and whatever they aim to achieve from their career break.

Where can I go and what can I do on my career break?

We have projects in over 300 countries. From diving with manta rays in Fiji, helping with conservation surveying in the Madagascan forest, teaching English to kids in Honduras, or lending your medical skills to a village medical center in Nepal, we can offer a complete range of experiences.
