Gap Year Programme

Our Gap Year Programme offers young adults the opportunity to grow as individuals while having fun and serving at Wortelgat. Our main goal is the development of young individuals into tomorrow’s leaders. It is an exhilarating and extreme programme which offers them the opportunity to discover and develop their leadership potential.

We also prepare young minds for the challenges of adult life by facilitating leadership development, spiritual growth, improvement of physical fitness and self-awareness. It is a programme filled with vision, purpose, adventure and challenges – a once in a lifetime opportunity.
