Spend your gap year with Our Generation Voluntary Organisation and have the adventure of a lifetime. This program is ideal for recent high school graduates who need a change of pace, a change of scenery, new motivations and horizons to reach into and explore.

This program is as much for someone who knows exactly what they want to do in the future, but want to take some time to explore their other interests before buckling down; as it is for someone who is not sure what they want to do yet and needs some time and space to learn about themselves and try out different options. So whether you want to do volunteer work abroad, get some overseas work experience, try your hand at child care, renovate a school, teaching abroad or simply travel round for sightseeing to satisfy your wanderlust, we’ve got the perfect adventure travel option for you!

You will be challenged to explore your potential, build on existing skills and learn new ones, develop confidence and independence and learn about a different culture, whilst having a positive impact in your project.

Program Highlights

Volunteer with local communities in a wide variety of projects.

Have the opportunity to travel after your volunteering experience.
