Unsure what to do on your gap year travel? Ask the Guru!
GapGuru is a gap year specialist offering a wide range of exciting volunteer, travel and internship opportunities across Asia, Africa, South America and Europe. With GapGuru you could be doing anything from teaching orphans in Tanzania to working as a medical intern in India!
Joining one of our gap year programmes is your opportunity to discover new countries and cultures, to meet new people and immerse yourself in local communities. Our volunteers work in underprivileged communities, helping those in genuine need, while building their own skills, confidence and experience.
GapGuru programmes last from 2 weeks to 12 months and are carefully selected and supported by our UK and in-country teams. Our comprehensive pre-departure briefing and personalised service ensures that you make the most of your gap year experience, giving you the chance not just to travel, but to journey with a purpose!
