It's never too late to give something back to the world. Whether it's teaching children in Thailand, volunteering with something furry in Africa or learning a language in China, you can still do something life-changing with your holiday, sabbatical or career break. Apparently, the phrase we’re looking for is ‘gap year for grownups’ although personally, we just think that whoever you are, these experiences can only enhance your travels. Take a look at our volunteer abroad projects, TEFL courses and language courses to get some ideas for your next life-changing trip.
Throughout your travels, you will inevitably come across people that warm your heart and experiences that humble you. While others move on, volunteering is a unique opportunity to live within a community and get under the skin of a country. The projects we support repay these communities for allowing us to pass through their beautiful backyards and enjoy their generous hospitality.

WORK AND LEARN
Working and learning on your holiday or career break could either make you groan at the thought of heading back into the classroom, or it will reignite that solem promise you made to yourself 20 years ago to learn a new language or skill.

Let's face it, as a nation we have a shocking reputation for languages. Aside from the practical benefits of being able to have an actual genuine exchange with someone speaking another language, learning a language abroad is an incredible way to immerse yourself in a new place, get to know it as a local and forge new friendships. It's never too late to learn, nor to dispel some national stereotypes!
We work with language schools around the world, offering varying degrees of duration, private and group tuition, competency levels, and accommodation from local homestays to school residences.
