Of course you’ll want to know about the type of work you can do overseas on your Gap Year, and the countries you can volunteer in. During the Project Trust Selection Course you’ll receive presentations about all the countries we send volunteers to, and you’ll have the chance to speak to members of staff responsible for coordinating our country programmes to help you make a decision about where you might like to volunteer.
On average, we are able to offer around 80% of candidates a place overseas. Even those who are not offered a place overseas tell us how much they have learnt about themselves over these four days, and we are happy to provide verbal feedback to parents or teachers of applicants we cannot place.
The amount of volunteers on each Selection Course varies depending on the time of year, but you’ll be on Coll with between 12 and 40 other like-minded young people from the UK and Europe, and we look forward to welcoming you all to the island.
The selection deposit is non-refundable and guarantees your place on your chosen course and covers your return ferry tickets from Oban and your food and accommodation on the Isle of Coll. It also counts towards your final fundraising total for your placement overseas.
The actual costs for each individual to attend selection on the Isle of Coll are greater than £150 but Project Trust covers the additional costs through its own fundraising efforts.
