Imagine being given the opportunity to experience an exciting new life, in a completely new country, surrounded by new friends and colleagues, being trusted to carry out a meaningful new role. That’s what a Lattitude Gap Year is all about, discovering the world and stepping outside of everything you know.

Be a leader, mentor, tutor or caregiver, as you take on responsible roles as a volunteer staff member at your Lattitude “placement”. We offer a wide range of role options, and with no experience necessary, there’s no need to worry that you don’t know how to do the job – that’s where we come in.

As an international youth development organisation, we make all the arrangements, and provide the preparation, training, support, food, accommodation and more for you to grow into your role. And you WILL grow as a person!

You’ll gain an in-depth understanding of a new country and culture, and a new global perspective.

You’ll become someone with a unique story to tell. And importantly, you will acquire the knowledge and skills necessary to prepare you for continued education, employment and adult life.

We are happy to announce that applications are now open for our world-famous International Gap Year programmes for 2021!

We know that it seems a long way off, but there are limited positions available, preparations to be made, and we’d hate you to miss out by leaving it too late!

Visit our website and get the ball rolling for your year-of-a-lifetime!
