Project Trust Application Form

Please complete our online Application Form to be considered for a Gap Year overseas with Project Trust. If you have any problems with the online form, please call the Project Trust office on 01879 230444 or email

Things to consider before applying…

Project Trust specialises in voluntary Gap Year placements for school-leavers aged 17-19. If you do not fall within this age group, or have left school more than two years ago, unfortunately you aren’t eligible to volunteer with Project Trust. If this is the case we recommend you look at the Year Out Group website, and wish you the best of luck with finding a suitable voluntary placement.

In your Application Form we’ll ask you to write about your academic achievements, extra-curricular activities and interests and motivation for volunteering overseas. Please ensure that you write at least 200 words on your motivation for volunteering.

After submitting your Application Form…

Once we’ve processed your Application Form we’ll let you know whether you’ve been successful or not. If you are successful, we’ll invite you to book on to a Selection course. Please don’t try to book on to a Selection course until we’ve processed your Application Form.

Once you’re booked on to Selection you can get ready for a week on Coll: we look forward to seeing you here. If you have not heard from us within seven days of applying, please call the office on 01879 230444.

Project Trust aims to reflect the diversity of UK society in geographical, social, gender and ethnic background.
Our volunteering experience is open to all young people with the desire, motivation and aptitudes required to succeed.
