About Gapforce

We are proud to offer unrivalled experience in structured gap year programmes, volunteer projects and extreme expeditions.

Gapforce takes great pride in organising unique, exciting gap year and overseas volunteer projects that enable young people to become global citizens and make a real impact on the world.

You will make a positive impact on your world, while also heading off the beaten path. 




We offer you programs that are safer than independent travel, so you can join our groups to travel further and experience more.


Your Gapforce program has been seen in reality TV series in the UK and USA.

From British Royal Family to US TV stars and over 12,000 students of your age, have all participated on a Gapforce program, so don’t miss out!

 UK Trained leaders

Our overseas gap year projects are run by UK-trained leaders. Trained from the top down, our leaders are prepared and knowledgeable on our destinations.

Volunteers feel they have actually made a difference on our volunteering projects and made lifelong friends.

The Personal Touch

You will have your own Gapforce Personal Gap Year Advisor to help select the right program for you. We prepare you before you go and ensure you have an amazing time. Then our own staff in country travel with you as we all explore, learn and make friends from around the world.

Our Impact

The grassroots movement inspired by our model of working has led to unprecedented national level support for marine conservation in Madagascar, with the President recently committing to triple the coverage of the country’s marine protected areas, with a special emphasis on local governance.
