Gap Year 2021 Applications Open Now!

Challenge 2000 has a well-established Gap Year and Intern programme that caters for up to eight young people.

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.

It provides an opportunity for recent secondary school and/or university graduates to:

  • Grow personally and professionally
  • Attain a range of life skills
  • Get a wider experience of Aotearoa-New Zealand, its peoples and cultures
  • Gain a qualification in Youth Work
  • Explore and prepare for future careers

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.

Applications for next year’s programme are now open!
