Volunteering Experiences (2 weeks)

Gap year cultural immersion experiences allow the participants to garner the best of experiential learning through hands on experiences in close interaction with the local communities.

Program Overview

Quality education in Nepal is often hard to come by. Working with GAP Year Nepal offers the opportunity to help build a brighter future for children, and in turn, the future of the country. Coupled with important skills, such as math and artistic expression, the ability to speak English fluently can open the doors for many to become and do whatever they desire. A volunteer teacher in Nepal will primarily teach English and math to students between the ages of 6 and 13. Depending on the needs of the school, the volunteer may be asked to assist in other areas, like sports, art, and music.

More than merely reciting knowledge, volunteering as a teacher is about handing a part of you over to the children. It is about establishing a relationship that says, “I care”. In helping to develop a useful skill, you will be telling your students that they are worth the time and that they can accomplish anything. The time and compassion of a volunteer is truly invaluable to the growth of a young human being.

The success of your volunteer experience is entirely dependent upon you and what you want out of it. A proactive attitude and a willingness to help are essential in making the most of your time spent as a volunteer teacher in Nepal.

Dear Gap Year Nepal Team, Thank you so much for including me and making me feel like one of the team. My time here in Nepal has been so very special. I have learned so much in the last two months about humanity, teamwork and the human spirit. I would like to thank everyone who contributed their time whether it was a week/day/month, every small action helps! I hope Nepal rebuilds its walls and restores itself to its former beauty. I will be back soon to see! What an incredible country, with such humble human beings. It was an absolute pleasure visiting your country! Keep up the amazing work Gap Year Nepal. Until we meet again, lots of love

Have had such a great experience from Gap Year Nepal. I feel like so much has been accomplished in my short time here. The people I have met and all the permanent Gap Year Nepal staff are truly good people at heart, and have looked after me every moment. Really sad that I have to leave and wish I discovered these guys when I first came to Nepal, so I could have spend more time. Thank you Gap Year Nepal, You guys are dope!
