WHY TAKE A GAP YEAR
“When I travelled the world, I found many people just following the same guide book, visiting the same places, and usually with the same people! So I created GapFORCE.
With my own staff living in country the GapFORCE family of programs can work with at risk communities on long term aid projects, source unique adventures and run courses that offer new careers.
We specialise in school and university gap programs, filling the gap between your education and experience".
Marcus R. Watts FRGS, Founder of GapFORCE.

To guide us, we are independently inspected to
