Looking for gap year programs for volunteering? Want to volunteer abroad? http://theleap.co.uk

The UK's favourite company for planning and arranging a gap year abroad.

Find your Perfect Mix of Adventure and Projects.

So. You've just spent 12 years as a student and the better part of the last year conducting the kind of exhaustive university probe that'd make J. Edgar Hoover proud. The days roll on, the acceptance letters roll in, and you scream and jump and run out for stationery and a satchel (the nice classic tan one, with a buckle).

And uni starts. The auditorium at Enrolment Day is packed to the rafters with 1000 other people and 100 subject stalls, and you freeze. Now what? More often than not, university students commit themselves to an area of study, realise it's not their bag, and then swap subjects… often two or three times. If you don't know what you want to do, a year volunteering abroad or gaining top-notch work experience and trying out a few different things may be just the answer.

Lucky for you, our programs are many and varied. Whether it's horse riding you're up for, or teaching and childcare, marine conservation, community welfare, or a physical challenge, you'll have plenty of time to figure out which role in the 'real world' is the most right for you.

With A-level A grades at a record high, gaining life skills and experience from a gap year is becoming an important requirement to help your CV stand out from the competition. Taking a well planned gap year should be seen as an investment in the future that could help you secure your perfect job.

This year, a quarter of A-level exam results were A grades, with one in ten students receiving at least 3 A grades. With so many students scoring top grades, it is becoming increasingly difficult for employers to differentiate between candidates. Taking a gap year offers the perfect opportunity to gain valuable life skills and experience which could make your CV stand out from the competition and help you secure your dream job. However, the popularity of gap years is coming under threat due to fears of the inevitable student debt that will be accrued by attending university. The number of university applicants deferring their place for a gap year fell last year from 7.7% to 7.3%, according to UCAS.

Rather than being seen as a frivolous drain on finances, it believes that a well structured gap year should be viewed as an investment in the future, giving an advantage to graduates when applying for their dream job.

Gap years are all about "what did you learn"?

What future employers will want to know is not what you did on your gap year, but what you learnt. Fill your gap year wisely and it will prove to be a CV enhancing period in your life. There are endless opportunities open to you so it is essential to undertake careful research and detailed planning if you are to make the most of the time available. iGapyear.com recommends a mixture of activities to offer the best skill set, such as paid work to raise funds, gaining valuable work experience in a career relevant field, participation in a structured volunteer program and a period of independent travel
