We offer award-winning volunteering and intern projects across Africa, Asia and South America. Unlike other gap year companies, all our programs include a mix of different projects in a mix of locations - with a team of like-minded people. You'll travel to several different places across the country you've chosen to visit, and take part in all sorts of activities along the way.

You'll also do the whole thing as part of a team of 8-15 volunteers taking The Leap, who you'll meet before you go. Having them there will make a huge difference to what you can achieve and the fun you can have, and ensures that a great social life comes as standard.

For example a volunteer program in Ecuador involves travelling through the heights of the Andes, down into the steamy Jungle and onto the white sands of the Galapagos.

All the while getting stuck into environmental conservation in the Galapagos, jungle reforestation, building community infrastructure, organic cocoa farming, leading kids on outward-bound adventures, building fresh water wells in remote villages, developing artisan markets, an adrenaline adventure week and Spanish lessons - all neatly packed into 10 weeks.
