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 both Digital and Isle of Coll Project Trust Selection Courses you’ll receive presentations about the countries that might be available to Volunteer in once COVID restrictions are eased. 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 4 in 5 Candidates a place overseas. Even those who are not offered a place overseas tell us how much they have learnt about themselves throughout the Course. And we are happy to provide feedback to parents, guardians, or teachers of Candidates who are not placed.
The amount of Candidates on each Selection Course varies depending on the time of year and type of course. For Digital Selection it’s with five other Candidates, while on Coll you will most likely be with between 12 and 40 other like-minded young people – from the UK, Ireland, and Europe.
Whatever route is open to you, we look forward to welcoming you all to join in an empowering experience that our Returned Volunteers say helped set their direction in, or change their mindset for, life.
The Selection payment is non-refundable and guarantees your place on your chosen course.
The higher cost of the face-to-face Isle of Coll courses, which Project Trust staff subsidise through our own fundraising efforts, also covers your return ferry tickets from Oban and your food and accommodation during your stay on the island.
