Gap Years

Gap Years

Watch the video above to see what gap year students have to say about their gap time spent in Nepal. 
After graduating high school many students are not yet ready to go on to university. They are looking for a challenge, an adventure that will help define their life objectives, an independent experience that builds confidence--something deeply rewarding, unique, and powerful.

Himalayan Voluntourism creates custom tailored gap year projects for students and helps to facilitate the logistics of their time in Nepal. 
Many gap year students of ours are those who first came to Nepal on a school trip and decided they wanted another, more intense experience doing outreach in Nepal.
