About GapGuru

GapGuru is a gap year specialist offering a wide range of exciting volunteer projects, travel programmes and gap year internships across Asia, Africa, South America & Europe. With GapGuru you could be teaching English in Ecuador, working as a medical intern in India, working as an orphanage volunteer in Tanzania or even trekking Everest!

Our internship, travel and volunteer programmes are carefully selected and supported by our UK and in-country teams and we offer placements in organisations that make a real difference in underprivileged communities. This gives volunteers the opportunity to do something rewarding on their gap year, and we do our best to match every volunteer to the right volunteer project for them.

To help gap year travellers make the most of their experience, we also run comprehensive pre-departure briefing sessions and provide full support before, during and after their placement. Taking a gap year with GapGuru is your opportunity to discover new countries, customs and cultures, to meet new people and immerse yourself in local communities.
