Project Trust was founded in 1967 and is now one of the most experienced and professional gap year organisations in the UK. Their aim is to provide young people with an opportunity to understand a community overseas by immersing themselves in it; living and working there for a year. All projects are vetted for their suitability for volunteers and none deprive local people of work. Project Trust has sent over 5,500 volunteers to around 25 different countries in Asia, Africa and the Americas.
All of the projects give young people the chance to make a difference in the developing world through teaching, social care and outward bound projects, as well as the opportunity to develop themselves.
