Volunteering Projects Overseas, Gap Years and Internships
The Gap Year has become a desirable option for those about to go to university. You’re 18, you’ve been in education all your life, and let’s face it: you’re tired. Why not go on the holiday of a lifetime? You can climb a mountain, help build a school in Peru, Cambodia, Ecuador or Vietnam, trek around an ancient ruin, or if you fancy it, just get some valuable work experience in the UK.
The Gap Year offers a wonderful break between your childhood and adulthood; it’s an opportunity you’re unlikely to ever get again. So why not grab it with both hands?
Employers – more and more – value unique experience in their employees. Someone who’s learned a language, experienced different cultures and different perspectives, dedicated months of their lives to a charitable enterprise, or worked towards their lifelong career ambitions.
So to benefit your life, your career and even the lives of other – consider a Gap Year.
