About GapGuru

Year Founded: 2004

GapGuru offers students a wide range of volunteer, travel, and internship opportunities all over Asia, Africa, South America, and Europe. The organization was established in 2004 and continues to develop programmes for students which allow them to discover new countries, learn about new cultures, meet new people, and immerse in local communities. Working with over a hundred projects in eleven countries and four continents, GapGuru programmes help students improve personal skills and build confidence through voluntary work, teaching, internship, and travel opportunities. All projects are carefully chosen and researched to provide the best possible experience for the students and the community and organisation they are working for. GapGuru is in partnership with Year Out Group, an organisation ensuring the safety and compliance of strict code of conduct in providing gap years.
