Gap Year Volunteering Abroad Programs

For an immersive, engaging and impactful volunteering project during your gap year abroad, opt from the several different opportunities facilitated by Volunteering Solutions. Available in 24+ countries in Asia, Africa, Latin America, Australia, and Europe, some of our most participated projects include wildlife and conservation, summer volunteering and travel specials, childcare and teaching projects as well. You can combine projects, destinations and customize your experience the way you want because after all - it’s your very own gap year. 

Some of the biggest highlights of taking a gap year volunteering abroad project with VolSol include : 

  • Living in your destination like a local in homestays and volunteers houses meeting people from all over the globe practically under one roof.
  • Learning how to cook local meals.
  • Opportunity to build new and work on existing skills.
  • Dedicated and impactful volunteer work.
  • Weekend travel options with fellow gap year travelers and volunteers.

A gap year is a time to challenge yourself, realize your strengths and work on your weaknesses, meet people you’d never meet ordinarily and do most things you’ve thought of for your bucket list.  VolSol helps you realize this dream in a hassle-free way and takes care of everything - project placements, travel, pre-departure preparation, insurance, visa assistance, flights - and basically everything under the sun at very affordable costs. 

So what you are waiting for? Join us and let this moment mark the beginning of your gap year volunteering abroad.
