Challenge 2000 GAP Year Programme 2017

Challenge 2000 and the Society of Mary offer

The GAP YEAR Programme in 2017

What is a GAP Year???

It’s a one year programme that involves holistic formation, NZQA youth work training, work placements, experiences, and local and possibly international travel. The Gap Year offers the chance to develop the social, spiritual, intellectual, employment, well-being and physical elements that are required for a positive, successful and balanced life.

 You will also be able to access the extras that will help you on your life journey: driver’s licence, first aid certificate, technology training and at the same time you get paid!! YES that’s correct.  You get the chance to grow, discover and learn with an awesome team of young people who are open to what life offers! Already 40 young people from New Zealand and overseas have accepted this invitation and graduated from the programme!

So if you are leaving college in 2016, or 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 2015. There are only 8 places available.

Opportunities like this are few and far between!

 Applications close November … 2016; The Gap Year starts February 2017
