Gap Years with Frontier

Taking a Gap Year


Volunteering and travelling on your gap year is a fantastic way to learn more about the world around you, have new experiences and gain new skills. Taking a break from education or opening yourself up to other opportunities helps you gain a new perspective on both the outside world and what’s important in your own life.

 

For first time travellers, joining an ethical adventure trail can be the best way to meet others and combine backpacking with volunteering. Volunteering on your gap year gives you the chance to learn more about the issues that affect us worldwide and join a global community working to find sustainable solutions. Joining a project means not only making a valuable contribution to a long-running project, but also joining a group of like-minded people. Volunteering can also help you learn and develop new skills as you discover new passions and gain confidence  that will stay with you upon your return.

 

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 ‘Apply Now’ on one of our project pages, fill in the application form and one of our volunteer advisors will call you right back.
