Christian Aid gap years

A Christian Aid gap year can be a life-changing experience. Young people who take part in the scheme can gain the knowledge and skills to understand some of this issues of global poverty and work with Christian Aid to help tackle it.
Christian Aid gap year volunteers visit another country to gain first-hand experience of projects Christian Aid supports, before returning to the UK to introduce local teenagers, university students and youth leaders to our work around the world, and involve them in global campaigns and activities.
