Plan My Gap Year

Plan My Gap Year is an award-winning international volunteer placement organisation based in the UK.

About the Project
Plan My Gap Year provide safe, affordable, volunteer programs overseas from 1 to 24 weeks in 12 countries worldwide. Whether you’re traveling solo or as part of a school trip, we are here to help organise every aspect of your trip.

Our structured programs create the perfect platform for you to see the world, meet like-minded people and engage in meaningful volunteer work. We have teams in the UK and in our host destinations who will support you 24/7 throughout your time with us. Furthermore, every project on our network is regularly risk-assessed by our UK team to ensure our set up is safe and that our volunteers are making a positive impact.

Founded by volunteers for volunteers, Plan My Gap Year works with local communities in the developing world towards long-term sustainable goals. We know there is no better way to travel and make a positive impact on the world. Volunteering abroad is quite simply an extraordinary, mind-blowing adventure. Are you ready for it?
Social Impact

There are a number of cultural and social factors we take into account when establishing our volunteer programmes. We work on two fundamental principles. Firstly, our volunteers are there to serve and not be served. Secondly, each destination comes with its own socio-cultural value system. As a consequence there is no one-size fits all model and we continue to evolve our approach to meet the changing needs of the projects.
