Oyster Worldwide is a well-regarded gap year travel and responsible travel specialist.
Many of our projects were founded in 1999 and have been nurtured and supported by us ever since. We are known for running life-changing gap year programs, giving you the opportunity to make a genuine contribution and for the first class support you receive.
Want to get paid work or volunteer abroad? Oyster’s wide range of popular gap year programmes, career break projects and volunteering breaks allow you to get under the skin of a country and to do something worthwhile whilst there.
From paid gap year jobs to worldwide volunteering opportunities, we have something for you. With projects from just one week up to a full year, there is huge scope for doing something amazing with the time that you have.
Our gap year volunteering projects are suitable for school leavers, gap year students, those taking career breaks, families and people in retirement – a real highlight of our volunteering trips in particular is the wide range of people that you come across from all round the world. Planning your trip with Oyster Worldwide could not be easier, with all of our staff members having done their own gap adventures and responsible travel.
It’s 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.
