ENVIRONMENT AND CONSERVATION VOLUNTEERING

Gap Year International aims to present volunteers with a sabbatical year, typically a half or year-long break before or after college/university during which volunteers engage in various educational and developmental activities, such as travel or some type of regular work.  Are you passionate about eco volunteering and want to support environmental volunteer abroad projects, or get involved with conservation volunteer abroad opportunities? GYI affordable environment and conservation volunteer program enable international volunteers to support conservation and sustainable organic farming efforts within communities abroad. You can choose to volunteer with GYI from 1 week up to 24 weeks in Wilderness, located in South Africa.
