Volunteer Abroad

Need a timeout from your life? It doesn’t matter if you’ve just finished school, graduated from uni, want to take a break from your degree or your current job just isn’t cutting the mustard – there’s a lot to be said for taking a sabbatical. And it's never too late to take a gap year.

It’s an opportunity to work, teach, volunteer or learn in another country. Experience a different way of life and immerse yourself in a new culture, sans the tourist tagline. In the past year, Student Flights gap year bookings with no return date grew 31 percent, but it doesn’t stop there - there’s also been a 29 percent increase for open-ended adult (non-student) bookings. For many, a gap year may be less than six months and for others, 12 months may not be long enough.

Want to make a real difference? With gap year destinations in Asia, North America, Africa, Central America, South America and Europe, Student Flights can help you get along your way – whether you need a simple hook-up or the Rolls Royce in relocation services. There’s a gap year experience to suit every budget – all you have to do is get started on your escape plan. We can help you with flights, but we can’t break the news to your boss, sorry!

 

Change your world and someone else’s

If you want more from your gap year, volunteering is the ideal way to really experience an overseas destination and gain a deeper understanding of a culture and community than just as a tourist passing through. Volunteering for all or part of a gap year abroad is a two-way street; you'll get just as much out of your trip as the people you are helping. Find out more >>


 

Teach English and be immersed in a different culture

Teach English overseas and you'll also be learning as you go - a gap year helping children and adults learn your native language is a rewarding experience that will enrich your life and theirs. Whether you would like to travel to Africa, Asia, South or Central America or even Europe, there are plenty of places where you can teach others and see the sights on a gap year. Find out more >>


 

Skills just for thrills

Not all learning leads to a degree, some courses are just for fun. And it's a fact that the best way to learn a foreign language is in a country where it's the predominant tongue. But don't limit yourself to languages, how about Archaeology work experience in Lima, Marine Biology in South Africa or perfecting your yoga poses in India? Bring back a souvenir you'll use for life! Take the initiative, boost your CV and invest in your future – all whilst making memories and friendships to last a lifetime. 


 

Earn money and travel at the same time

Live like a local, earn the local currency and gain life experiences that you just can't buy on a working holiday overseas. Getting a job on your gap year abroad not only allows you to earn more money for travel, you'll be filling your CV with bragworthy skills whether you further your career with an internship or try your hand at something new. A working holiday could see you nannying in Europe, pulling pints in Ireland, or building communities in Thailand! For an amazing immersion experience where you'll really feel part of the action, a working holiday is something you'll never regret.
