Gapforce is a leading provider of structured gap year programs, offering over 27 years of unrivalled experience in volunteer projects, extreme expeditions and outdoor training courses.
Since 1989 we have been organising unique travel experiences that are simultaneously daring, meaningful and safe - enabling young people to become global citizens and make a real impact on the world.
Our wide range of unforgettable global adventures involve marine conservation, wildlife protection, community volunteering, extreme expeditions, sports coaching, as well as ski instructor and leadership training.
A key component of the success of our projects is our UK-trained expedition leaders who are some of the most experienced in the industry and ensure our participants have unforgettable experiences on their trips.
Trained from the ground up, our Expedition Leaders are knowledgeable in safety, group education, wilderness survival and much more. In addition, our leaders are prepared and knowledgeable on each and every one of our destinations, allowing us to thoroughly vet all of our local programs for sustainability and longevity. It is through these sustainable projects around the world that Gapforce and our participants are able to work directly with local communities to provide help and support in many different forms.
We are proud to be a closely-knit team, based both in our UK office and across the globe. Our staff are the foundation and sacred portals of knowledge that allow us to build truly unique gap year programs and ensure our participants have unique and empowering adventures on their gap year and volunteering programs.
