Pacific Discovery gap year, semester and summer programs are experiential education programs, suitable for high school graduates, university students and recent graduates, developed with a focus on six core components: educational travel, service learning, cultural and language immersion, sustainable adventure travel, outdoors and wilderness exploration, personal and leadership development.
All of the components provide great opportunity for participants to learn about themselves - and the world around them, to push their boundaries, question their assumptions, to stimulate problem solving and inquiry skills.
By giving participants responsibilities and freedom within the framework and safety of a well designed and carefully managed program, participants are supported and empowered, helping them become more capable and self-reliant. These programs are pivotal experiences in our participants lives.
Pacific Discovery is an educational travel organization accredited with American Gap Association (USA), Year Out Group (UK), and OutdoorsMark (NZ), and a member of The Forum on Education Abroad (USA).
