Gap years, career breaks and responsible travel from two weeks to a year in 17 countries


Oyster Worldwide is a well regarded gap year travel and responsible travel specialist. Most of our projects were founded in 1999 and have been nurtured and supported by us ever since. We are known for giving you the opportunity to make a genuine contribution to your chosen project and for the first class support you receive.

Oysterís wide range of gap year programs and career break projects include volunteer teaching in Tanzania , learning Spanish in Chile , animal welfare projects in South Africa and paid work in Australia or Canada . Spend from just two weeks away to a full year.

If you want to do more than lie on a beach and want a truly memorable holiday, we have plenty of responsible, enjoyable and worthwhile projects for you to consider.

Itís fun too, making lifelong friendships and returning home with a fresh outlook on the world and where you come from. If you want to feel you are part of local life rather than a tourist passing through, we would love to hear from you to tell you all about our great short term and gap year opportunities.
