Gap Year 2020 Applications CLOSING!

Posted: 5 December 2019

This is your final chance to get your applications in for Gap Year 2020!

This year’s Gap Year is shaping up to be one of the biggest and best yet!

Since 2007 the Society of Mary and Challenge 2000 have offered a full time gap year programme based in Wellington. Each year, eight young people accept the challenge to say “yes” and spend a year at Challenge 2000 developing, growing and serving others in our community.

In 2018, an internship was also integrated to the programme, this gives young people who have recently graduated or about to graduate an opportunity to gain work experience and prepare themselves for the workforce.

If you are under 20 years of age and want more life experience, an opportunity to serve and to be part of a positive active community, then contact us and apply for our Gap Year.
Each year, there are only 8 places available for gap students and interns.
