Gap Year is a non-profit organization that aims to promote international volunteer opportunities as well as active participation in aid projects.
Gap Year recognizes the importance of integrating volunteers in development projects to act as an additional resource to local staff.
The International volunteer service, through mutual acceptance and understanding, strengthens tolerance, solidarity and contributes to create a net of relationships between people belonging to different cultures. Gap Year offers the opportunity to carry out both short and long term volunteer experiences in South America, India and Africa, contributing directly to the development projects of partner organizations.
Gap year provides information on our projects and partner organizations, facilitates a selection process and supports all volunteers before their departure. Each volunteer is encouraged to contribute to the volunteer experience according to his/her personal abilities, study and work experience.
Gap Year has no religious or political affiliation.
