Why work with children?

Children are energetic, noisy and heaps of fun.  Spend your gap year abroad working with children and you will love every minute of it. Help children to grow in confidence, develop skills and most importantly, feel supported. We have many childcare programmes that are looking for enthusiastic people to help out. You can choose to spend your gap year volunteering abroad and work with vulnerable children around the world. This is a worthwhile way to spend any careerbreak or gap year. Alternatively, work abroad at a ski resort, complete a ski instructor course and teach on the nursery slopes.  Whatever you choose – you can guarentee there is no such thing as a dull day when working with children.
