Gap Years with Frontier gap year abroad

Taking a Gap Year

An exciting way to gain new experiences and skills while exploring different cultures and customs around the world is by volunteering and travelling in your gap year. Taking a break from school and trying something different gives you the opportunity for a fresh perspective not only about the world, but about the priorities in your life.

For a first time traveller, joining an ethical adventure trail helps you meet others who share similar goals with you as you combine backpacking with volunteering. Volunteering during your gap year gives you insight on local and global issues while working to find lasting solutions. Volunteering during your gap year helps you develop new skills and work experiences while making valuable and lasting impacts on communities in need. Discovering new passions throughout your journey and gaining a better understanding of the world is something that will stay with you long after your gap year is over.

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 the ‘Apply Now’ link and one of our volunteer advisors will call you right back.
