Skip the same old 'not much' and 'more of the usual' chitchat, and nail the 'what have you been up to?' question with stories from your gap year. Here at The Leap, we're all about variety. You'll hop from place to place across your chosen country, taking part in all kinds of activities along the way. One week you might be playing hide-and-seek with an indigenous tribe in Ecuador, the next taking surfing lessons on the Pacific Ocean.
Want to hit the reefs of Madagascar with the dolphins? No problem. Or read See Spot Run to a group of giddy children in Ecuador? Of course. Analyse data alongside environmental conservationists in the Galapagos? Sure thing! Track lion behaviour on horseback? Check out South Africa. Interested in community building? Then take charge at sanitation blocks in Tanzania. Or help lay a gravity feed water pipe in Borneo.
You'll also do the whole thing as part of a team of 8-15 guys and girls (fun x10), with the support of our highly-experienced team of overseas project leaders and UK staff. When you consider all that, it's no big surprise that since 2002 we've sent over 2400 Leapers overseas in search of adventure, purpose, and the kind of transferrable life skills that make 'tell me a time when…?' a complete cinch in a job interview.
