Volunteer with Kids on your Gap Year

Little steps bring great change

Looking beyond the tourist trail is sometimes a hard thing to do as more often than not you will come face to face with many communities who are living hand to mouth, with not very much at all.

Basic facilities, support, care and an education, which we take for granted, are not part of their lives, putting them in a stalemate position with poverty.

Across the countries we work with, we have found some amazing NGOs who provide support and a steadying hand to numerous after-school and rehabilitation centres where life skills focused on health and hygiene and general car, including washing hands and brushing teeth, basic literacy and numeracy skills are hugely valued and delivered by our stream of volunteers.

Community children in Cambodia

Where are you looking to go?

Volunteering with kids is interwoven into all our programs but Cambodia, Colombia, Costa Rica and Kenya have a greater emphasis on the community interaction. Have a look at the options to find your best fit for your gap year.

Add on independent travel

What we are finding is that our teams never want to come home post program and choose to add on a phase of independent travel with their new found friends - certainly making the most of their gap year. We can easily support this through our Leap VIP travel resource which every leaper has access to. Inside you will find 101 travel ides and itineraries to make sure you see the highlights of every country and do it through vetted, safe people. Have a read of the following blogs to get you started.
