MaptheGap.co.uk interviews Tace Bleasby about her gap year experiences with BUNAC, working at Summer Camp USA.
This week MaptheGap.co.uk looks at the other side of the story and chats with American Maggie Eckel about her gap year in the UK and travelling around Europe.
Over the past few weeks we’ve been focusing in on different gap year companies, helping you to decide which one is the best for you, so you can get the most out of your gap year. So far we’ve looked at i-to-i, BUNAC and Projects Abroad. This week we take a look at The Leap.
Working holidays in the USA are a bit different to working holidays in New Zealand, Australia and Canada and are usually done in the summer working in summer camps. It’s a great way to combine volunteering and other activities with travel for an amazing gap year. So here’s our guide on everything you need to know about working holidays in the USA.
For the first time, volunteers travelling with BUNAC, one of the UK’s leading work exchange organisations, will be able to teach English and other subjects in the heart of the Himalayas, following the launch of Volunteer Nepal.
These days there are so many volunteer abroad and gap year companies out there that it can be quite daunting and confusing to know which one to choose. Last week we featured the volunteering company i-to-i and gave you the lowdown to help make your decision easier. This week we’ll be focusing on BUNAC.
There are many different working holiday options for your gap year and while many people from the UK decide to head to Australia or New Zealand, Canada could be a great option too. There are over 35,000 participants from all over the world who decide to work in Canada for a year and you could be one of them.
With the increase in university fees and rise in cost of living, it makes sense to save some money before term starts. BUNAC is recommending working gap years in Australia, New Zealand and Canada, offering good job prospects for the 2011-12 year.
Get a taste of an American summer this July by volunteering at a US summer camp. Not-for-profit organisation BUNAC have paid slots for university students, trainee teachers and others aged 19 and over on their the Summer Camp USA programme.
For many students a gap year break is a rite of passage but with the introduction of higher top-up fees many feel that they simply can’t afford to take whole year off between college and university.
The perfect cure to beating the UK job market blues is a working holiday down under, says BUNAC, a leading work Australia and New Zealand gap year programme. BUNAC takes the stress out of arranging an overseas trip for candidates who wish to experience up to a year working and travelling in Australia or up to 23 months in New Zealand.
Travellers and volunteers are being recruited for a unique game capturing project in South Africa. The project, 450km north of Pretoria, is based on an 8,300-hectre cheetah conservation and research property which has recently established a new reserve and rehabilitation centre as a safe environment for South Africa's wildlife.
Taking a gap year may seem appealing to escape the financial concerns in the UK but it might be no longer a practical idea, that is unless you take a working break. Now as well you take part in the gap year Work Australia or Work New Zealand programme.
