Plan My Gap Year are an approved Duke Of Edinburgh Activity Provider allowing you to complete your Residential section on one of our overseas community volunteer experiences. All of our programmes applicable across Bali, Ghana, India and Sri Lanka are certified in meeting your Residential requirements. We have dedicated staff on-hand to sign and deliver on any paperwork, support structure and feedback that you and your assessor may require as contribution to the award.
The Residential opportunities are available for participants aged 16+ and require a minimum of seven days commitment overseas. We are here every step of the way to support you in planning your Residential from booking flights and arranging insurance to organising your airport pick up and meals and accommodation. So why not choose to do something exciting and adventurous and use your Residential as an opportunity to have a positive impact on local communities, build and develop your social skills and explore new cultures and horizons!
The shape and format of each of our DofE approved programmes remains exactly the same as our normal set up!
Our DofE programmes work in destinations with highly involved local teams who have set up great structures for younger volunteers.
Whether you choose wildlife, childcare, teaching or medical, all these options are available in our top destinations to DofE Residential.
DofE participants represent a growing number of our volunteers and many return the following year for more adventure!
