Rucksack competition for gap year travellers

We've been leading the field in overseas volunteering for 13 years, offering award winning projects across Africa, Asia and South America.

Headed up by (delectable!) husband and wife team Guy and Milly Whitehead, Leap Towers' team of totally dedicated, travel-addicted experts are on hand 24/7 to ensure you get the most from your time overseas - whether volunteering, interning or charging round the world on horseback!

No one travels alone, you'll venture off as part of a team, which we put together, so a great social life comes as standard and many hands ensure your projects are completed.
