Gapwork Gap Year Tips: Volunteering on your Gap Year

Choose a volunteer gap year and make a difference! Many of the organisations that gap year students volunteer to work with are charities. The work they do can range from sustainable development projects to conservation to community health initiatives. Because they are charities, the money you pay to go with them will often be in the form of a donation (they will suggest the minimum they require), and it is up to you to raise the money in any way you fancy. This means that the voluntary work you do for them and the money you raise is all going towards fulfilling the aims of each gap year organisation.

Deciding to join a voluntary project abroad or in the UK on your gap year will most likely result in you spending time with like-minded people, doing something you believe in, learning new skills, developing your confidence AND improving that CV!

Volunteering overseas or closer to home offers an incredible and enriching experience which can be part or all of your gap year, check out the companies in ouor Volunteering section for some great options.
