We offer an unrivalled collection of financially-protected, high-quality gap year programs where safety comes first – all organised and supported by caring and experienced staff.

Our gap year programs which combine multiple locations and different projects in a single trip.

We work hard to ensure that every team we send overseas gives something back to the environments and communities they visit, forging lifelong friendships along the way.

What’s your mix?


All our programmes include a mix of projects, in a mix of locations.

These will challenge both mind & muscle, whilst satisfying your desire for travel & adventure.

Work, rest and play


Gaining top-notch work experience is a great way to prepare for university or a full-time job.

 Our internships and career opportunities are available in law, teaching, business, skiing and expedition management.

All for one and one for all


You’ll also do the whole thing as part of a team of 8-15 others…

…so a great social life comes as standard and many hands ensure the projects are completed..

Supported by a team of friendly, caring superheroes

All of this is meticulously planned, executed and supported by our highly-experienced team of overseas project leaders and UK staff. They’re handpicked for their dedication to making your trip a safe and ultimately rewarding experience.

Our UK staff know exactly what’s involved in taking The Leap, and are here to help before you go. Once the adventure begins, they’ll be busy liaising with your project leaders on the ground and monitoring your progress.

They’re on-hand 24/7 should you need them.

We help young people travel, develop and fulfil their potential – JOIN THEM!
