typical day What's it like

A typical day on this gap year project

We have numerous projects in 30+ countries, so we can't describe a typical day on one of our volunteer projects. What should you know? Well, you'll get to know another location and another culture like never before. You'll most likely work throughout the week and explore mountains, rivers and jungles on the weekends. You'll get to know locals that can point out exciting spots to explore, or you'll explore the country closer to home by enjoying time with your host family. The options are endless. If you're interested in providing support to communities in need on programmes that are sustainable and ethical (and community-led), consider Kaya!

our offer Project Benefits

What we can offer you

Typically, our program fees include accommodations, meals 2x/day, airport pick-up and drop-off, training, a pre-departure information pack, onsite orientation and project induction, transfer to the project site after orientation, 24/7 support on the ground, and more. Every one of our projects is listed on our website, and each listing includes detailed costs and inclusions.

Due to the Covid-19 pandemic, we are reopening limited locations that meet our strict safety standards. You can travel with a small group of tested students and volunteers! If you want to hold out and travel later, let us know and we can keep you updated on specific locations and programmes. Looking for a virtual option? We have a series of virtual internships available that include cultural components, and they’ve been a huge success.

We’re here to support you the whole way, from start to finish (and beyond!), so let us know if you have any questions about any of our offerings.
