Projects Abroad

There are so many exciting projects abroad you can be part of on your gap year, from building projects, to community projects or projects working with kids or animal rescue.

The community needs you!

By becoming a community volunteer you can try your hand at everything, from teaching to helping street kids, to sports projects. With opportunities from Asia to Africa, being part of a project abroad is the perfect way to make your mark in your gap year.

The kids are alright

One of the most popular projects abroad is helping out with kids in deprived communities, boosting the prospects of future generations around the world. Take on a top task and teach kids in Tanzania, and show you've got what it takes to be a trusted teacher, on a teaching project abroad. Or show your caring side as you head abroad and help out with kids - become a childcare volunteer and prove your caring capabilities on a childcare project abroad in your gap year.

Special Skills

You may have a particular project abroad in mind if you know you've got a specialist skill to offer overseas.Become a medical volunteer and help out with health projects and heal communities across the globe. Or get your adrenaline going on a sports project, as you get fit and try out your fitness skills as you teach sports to kids worldwide.

Animal magic

Carry out some conservation on an environmental project abroad and get involved in some animal rescue during your gap year. Head out on a unique turtle conservation project in Malaysia and protect some of the world's threatened marine life. Or become a sucker for the sweet simians in South Africa, and go ape for an amazing animal project as you experience the magic of monkey rehab.
Whatever packs a punch as your perfect project abroad, you'll never be short of options as you head overseas for the gap year experience of a lifetime!
