Where, and how will you travel this summer?

Explore. Challenge. Volunteer.

Here at The Leap, we specialise in team volunteering adventures around the globe, and the focus right now is on summer, making sure school leavers, gap year and first year uni students plan a fun, productive and CV friendly adventure.

All possible through our 4-week programmes, which combine a dynamic mix of volunteering, exploring and adventure experienced with a team of like minded travellers. This all guarantees a fun social scene, a sense of satisfaction from making a difference to conservation and community projects whilst testing your resilience, teamwork and communication skills, adding sparkle to that all essential CV or personal statement.

So, is it the challenge and community of Costa Rica, or the oceans and wildlife in Kenya that catches your imagination?

July: Costa Rica Adventure

Departs 11th July 2024 for 4 weeks

If you're wanting to see all of Costa Rica's highlights in one exciting trip then Costa Rica Adventure is the one for you. You'll have four action-packed phases in four different locations, including Monteverde Cloud Forest, turtle sanctuaries, and community volunteering. You'll truly get to see the full range of locations and experiences that Costa Rica has to offer, all whilst giving something back.

Expect a big, buzzy team for this one, July programmes often get booked up quickly so don't leave booking until the last minute as the waiting list is not where your summer should be spent.

July: Kenya

Departs 17th July 2024 for 4 weeks

4 weeks, 3 epic phases. Spend 4 weeks on the stunning Kenya coast where you'll be working on marine projects focusing on coral reef regeneration in the marine protected area of Kuruwitu lagoon. From coral gardening to collecting data on fish populations, you'll be rolling up your sleeves and getting hands-on experience with our charity partners, the Oceans Alive trust. Combine beach and bush as you see the diverse wildlife both in and out of the ocean while you embark on a safari. Trust us, this project is genius and is ever-evolving.

You'll also be helping with community projects aimed at helping local people move away from reliance on fishing. This is the kind of experience you can't get on your own - perfect for a summer adventure.
