A gap year is when you make a conscious decision to take some time off - maybe it’s from your formal education, or before beginning a new job, or just to give yourself a breather. Often a gap year includes stepping boldly out into the world on your own terms and experiencing life abroad. Volunteer on one of our recommended programs for gap year travelers in the Philippines, Zambia, Brazil or Portugal.
