Gap year and summer programs - with a difference!
We are taking applications now for our programs starting in 2019.
Cultural immersion is more than just being a tourist and seeing the sights, it's a unique opportunity to engage meaningfully with individuals and a community, to build relationships, make friends and live life as they do.
All our programs are divided into three parts - orientation, cultural immersion placement and independent travel.
- Orientation - a chance to settle in, get to know your group and make sure you're fully prepared for all aspects of your placement.
- Immersion - you live and work with others from your group, sharing your skills, in one of our partner communities near Arusha or Machame (near Moshi). Key to the experience is the high level of independence we offer. We're always available, but we stand back and let you make the most of the experience.
- Independent Travel - the final month of the program is free for you to explore the game reserves, mountains, national parks or beaches of East Africa. We're still here to support you whenever you need!
