Will the summer of 2019 be the one that could change your life forever? It could be if you travel to Kenya on a summer work experience program with Africa & Asia Venture (AV). You might not have had the chance to take a full gap year but this is an opportunity to take a mini gap year in your summer holidays. Over five weeks you’ll experience all of the adventure and stand out work experience of our Gap Year Programs.
Volunteers who have joined our Kenya short work experience programs have told us that it was their Kenya trip that got them into their career of choice. It gave them something unique to write about on their CV/resume and to talk about at interview. Years down the line, as they have moved up the career ladder, many of them still talk about it at interview because it is a differentiating factor that helps them stand out from the crowd. Interviewers are genuinely interested in what they did in Kenya.
Don’t just take our word for it; here’s what Georgie Spens said about her time with Africa & Asia Venture (AV)……
“I participated in this Africa & Asia Venture trip in the summer and it was honestly one of the most impactful and incredible things I have done so far in my life!
The AV team was so helpful and kind, ensuring we were safe and were fully organised for the trip, and once out there the representatives were friendly and so easy to get on with. I didn’t know anyone prior to the trip, but made a few good friends whilst there. The best thing about AV is you see first hand where your money goes, and how it directly benefits people. I was pushed out of my comfort zone in the best way possible, and in the process I learned so much about myself.
I could not recommend this programme more enthusiastically; I encourage all to take a look at it and consider going on the adventure of a life time!”
