Experiential core curriculum that pushes students to reflect and ask questions of themselves, Certificate of Program Completion
Embark on an enriching journey during your South America gap year program, as you explore the captivating cultural and natural wonders of Peru, Ecuador, and the Galapagos Islands.
This program offers students the opportunity to immerse yourself in the vibrant lives of indigenous Andean and Amazon communities while honing your conversational Spanish skills. Engage in valuable volunteer projects initiated by local communities, meander through the historic streets of Quito and Cuzco, and be awe-inspired by the majesty of Machu Picchu, Lake Titicaca, and the Galapagos Islands. From trekking through Andean peaks and the Amazon rainforest to kayaking, cycling, and snorkeling along the Galapagos beaches, you'll traverse diverse environments like never before.
Build meaningful connections, learn about the region's history, and contribute to sustainability and conservation efforts.
We recently embarked on a Net Positive Benefit project where we are qualifying what impacts our groups have on the local communities, taking into consideration carbon emissions +/- social impacts +/- conservation impacts +/- community impacts. On our programs, students engage with non-profit organisations such as Litter Intelligence, Scholars of Sustenance, Ulu Mau puanui, Llama Pack project where they directly work for a better future - planting trees, eradicating invasive weed species, helping local communities and food banks.
