Gap Year

gap year For Over 18s

If you’re over 18 & looking for something out of the ordinary for your gap year, Agapé Adventures provide you with all you need - advice, training, 24/7 support, accommodation, food and most importantly the adventure of a lifetime! In some of our long term projects you can even get a monthly allowance for your personal spending...what more could you need!

Get More From Your Gap Year

Some people see Gap Years as a time simply to veg out on a beach somewhere hot - but if you want more from your Gap Year than that then you've come to the right place! Gap years are great ways to explore your world and use your time to help others make a difference in their communities. You don't have to stay in one place all year, if you wish you can choose a variety of short term projects to explore for a few months at a time. 

Teaching, Medical care, Sports, Conservation, Help the Homeless...

We have a wide range of Gap Year projects where you can do anything from teaching street children, assist with medical care, coach sports teams, help endangered species, support the homeless or even teach mechanics! Agapé Adventures works with you as an individual, we find out what interests you and what you want to gain from your Gap Year and then we help to tailor make your experience. 

Improve Your CV and Test Your Vocation

Gap Years when organised properly can provide you with a fantastic amount of work experience which will help you greatly in your chosen career. They can also be a great way to test your vocation and see if it's really what you want to do with the rest of your life before you commit to years of study. 

At Agapé Adventures our doors are always open, so if you have a question or even if you have no clue what you want to do with your Gap Year then all you need to do is contact us and we can help guide you to the right project options that suit you.
