Gap Year

Frontier

Just reached Costa Rica with the trail, and looking forward to a month at the rainforest conservation camp. It's been a blast so far, visiting three different Mayan sites, in Mexico, Honduras and Guatemala. We've been diving, volcano boarding, trekking, tubing and lots more. I'm loving my group and the trail leader and wish it wouldn't end!

The project is excellently managed and when participating you can see the reasons for all the surveys you do. The staff work tirelessly to ensure you get the most out of the project.

I thoroughly enjoyed the Ethical Adventure Trail and am therefore pleased overall with my experience. The countries we visited, activities we did and the people we met were brilliant.

I could not fault the trail leader from start to finish. Her travelling experience and Spanish were indispensable. She was also friendly, fun and compassionate which I found to be essential when I was unwell. The trail would not have been the same without her!

Projects Abroad

Projects Abroad is an amazing organization that has helped me achieve my goals, help others, make lifelong friends across the globe, and learn so many things. I was just getting ready to graduate high school and I knew I wanted to travel the world and help others while I am young and able. Projects Abroad made that possible with their Global Gap Year program, which took me to Ghana, South Africa, Peru, Nepal, and Thailand.

From the beginning, Claudia, a project coordinator at Projects Abroad, answered all my questions and provided me with all the information I needed to make the decision to go on the journey of a lifetime. The staff at Projects Abroad are friendly, knowledgeable, and dependable, at home and in country.

There are set projects in some countries and options in others, including; care, teaching, medicine, animal care, building, marine conservation, and others. We really got to experience and do so many incredible things. During the week we worked hard and on the weekends we had time to explore and reflect. Each country we volunteered in came with unique cultures and different volunteer opportunities. Yet the one thing they all had in common was great staff, amazing host families, and friendly people. I am so thankful for the opportunities Projects Abroad provided me with and if you are thinking of taking a gap year, Projects Abroad is the organization for you. You get to help others, see the world, and make lifelong friends. Seeing the smiles on others and the impact you can make, well, there is no better feeling in the world.

The Intern Group

Since the moment I applied to when I arrived everything has worked as It suppose and better, I mean in 2 weeks after I applied the Staff was telling me that there was a company that fit my interest very well, and in a few weeks later every detail was set up for me arriving here. The process is very easy to follow, and you feel you have someone to ask about any step you are doubtful to take.

Go Abroad China (GAC) ***Warning Fake Reviews***

I lived in Beijing before for studying and always had this dream to come back and settle in the city, having a proper job and etc. I graduated this year and thought it would be the perfect timing to come back to China. But I didn’t know what to do or where to start… I was a bit lost and didn’t have anything actually planned.
When I found Go Abroad China on Google it immediately came across as a good opportunity for me and fit perfectly to my profile, so I applied online.
Finally, they got a placement for me after weeks of waiting.

I was enrolled to the company I interned. Yeah, I was really lucky! So I was really happy with the internship, with the tasks I had been given and with my marketing team.

So, after 4 months being a hard worker intern, they officially offered me the position of Marketing Assistant, extending it for another 6 months and it will be reviewed with a view to implementing a full-time contract. Couldn’t be happier!
If you have the same aspirations as me and if you are a hard worker, I highly recommend applying for Go Abroad China Internship program! There are no limits to the benefits that you could gain by making part of it.

My initial impressions and thoughts of this trip have been surpassed by what I have experienced in these past six weeks. As soon as I arrived at the Madagascar base camp I felt a warm welcome, with my fellow travellers, friendly staff and an impressive beach camp. The camp is well segregated into sleeping areas, science space and communal, relaxing area – and in all has a homely feeling.

I was impressed by the organisation of the marine project, and straight away I was involved in the day to day conservation activities (Advanced Open Water course, fish/coral/invertebrate lectures). Thanks to the Marine PI, I managed to go on satellite camp which was the highlight of the trip – amazing diving, great food, great company and a good atmosphere.

The diving in general is great and there is a good variation in marine life in all the sites that we survey which is good in comparatively understanding the degradation of the local coral reefs. I have thoroughly enjoyed my six weeks here and will come back for another frontier trip in marine conservation.

The central america trail was excellent and i thoroughly enjoyed myself. It all ran smoothly and there were no problems. The camp in Costa rica was also run incredibly well, and the store, showers, running water and toilet were all pleasant surprises.

Had a great time during my 4 weeks in Tenerife with Frontier. I was expecting much more basic accomodation, but it was a nice surprise. A big villa with en-suite showers, wifi, a private courtyard and in a sleepy, safe area.

The main part of the project work is going out on the whale watching boats and monitoring whale and dolphin sighting locations and numbers. We also work with the tourists on the boat to promote responsible cetacean watching.

It's a fun project in a great location with lots to do outside the project activities if you want to. You can also get flights really cheap - £100 return or less if you shop around. Recommended!
