Price Details
We work with you to identify your budget and plan within that. Total cost depends on factors like airfare, included activities, destination(s) and length of trip. Our "Map and Compass Package" starts at $795 and is best for students who want to take the lead in their planning process, but could benefit from feedback and guidance connecting with ideal partner and host organizations. Our more inclusive option is the "Passport Package" which is best for students who want more consistent coaching before, during, and after their program.

About Program

Global Routes GAP programs (GRIT Track) are tailored to the individual goals and interests of each participant. After an initial scoping session, we’ll work together on the sequence of your experience, selecting partner host organizations and opportunities that best fit your goals. We’ll support you with your pre-trip planning and will be in contact throughout your experience.

“An eye opening and independent experience! The unknown, although scary at first, is a rare experience found only in travel. It taught me so much about adapting and learning from others. Overall, I am so happy to have been pushed outside my comfort zone as I only learned and prospered from the decision to work with Global Routes GRIT.”
– Grace, GAP Year Student, Peru
