Gap Year Projects

Finished high school and don’t want to go to university yet? Want to take a break from formal education but still gain invaluable experience and have the time of your life? Frontier’s gap year projects are the best way to go with projects in over 50 countries for you to choose from.

Why go on a gap year project?

A gap year is a great way to join a group of people with similar mindsets and combine it with volunteering, backpacking, sightseeing, ethically responsible travel and whatever else your heart desires! During your gap year project, you will get to experience different cultures, make lifelong friendships and all the while without it even feeling like work developing your skill set. It is an amazing opportunity to learn outside of a formal setting and gaining knowledge from different perspectives and people from different walks of life.  Going on a gap year project with Frontier will let you experience new countries and understand different issues faced by people in these different countries. Through this, you will be able to be an active member of a larger community which has a better understanding of the world.

Frontier's gap year projects

Gap years allow you to embark on a volunteering or adventure travel experience around the globe. Whether you are interested in a particular country or activity, Frontier has a gap year project suitable for you. These gap year opportunities can be focused on a specific activity such as marine protection, community volunteering, ethical conservation, ski instructor or safari game ranger to name but a few; or can be broader where you will take part in a range of activities. If you want your gap year project with Frontier to be your main focus, we have plenty of placements that last between 3 and 6 months. If, however, you would like to focus on travelling but get a taste of volunteering, Frontier also has a huge range of projects that you can join from as little as one week.
