Gap Year presentation

The GAPYear Experience involves:

·         an initial 12 week Adventure Leadership training Programme (Christchurch based)

·         followed by opportunities to work overseas in Hong Kong, USA, Australia, or New Zealand.

·         and then travel the world…..endless

 

The 12 week Adventure Leadership Programme is designed for school leavers and others wanting to take a structured ‘time out’ and provides fun and friendship plus practical learning in small team environments. This course delivers a Horizons Certificate in Adventure Leadership and involves a range of outdoor activities, leadership skills and interpersonal skills development.

 

For most, the exciting (and biggest learning) part of the GAP Year is the overseas work at either Summer Camps in the USA (running the various activities they have learnt with us), teaching surfing to children at Treasure Island in Hong Kong, or running camp based programmes (all over the world).

 

Some of our students use this course as their first step to working in the adventure industry. However, for most it provides a structured ‘Gap Year’, helping them to return to tertiary study in New Zealand the following year more independent, resourceful and better motivated.

 

Our next programme runs from February – May 2018. We are now accepting applications for this. We are more than happy to chat to individual students about our programme and invite those who are interested to call 0800 GAP YEAR or visit our website www.gapyear.org.nz.
