Volunteer & Travel

Volunteer on your gap year

Volunteering provides the resources to bring about change

The world has so much to offer, there are countless cultures to explore, people to meet, music to listen to, and foods to try. We clearly embrace all that travelling stands for but we also encourage you to dig a little deeper and give something back...we want you to consider heading off the backpacker route to access parts of the country not written up in the Lonely Planet guide. We want you to find the authentic culture, to learn about the issues that affect them, and make lasting friendships in the most unexpected of places.

It can be hard to find a way to make this possible, and this is where our volunteering network comes in.

We have travelled the world to find local people who know the off-grid communities and know what their struggles are and how they can be addressed if only resources were available....enter our Leapers who do just that - volunteering by providing the manpower and finances to turn project ideals into reality - making a positive difference as they travel for everyone involved.

How do you know which is right for you?

You will just know...some Leapers come to us with a passion for teaching or kids and others want to focus on marine or conservation projects. The good news is that all our programmes involve a mix of projects so you get a broad experience by trying a bit of everything - from conservation and community.
