VentureCo specializes in gap year and career break adventures; all of the programmes are about working within a group, helping developing communities and exploring off the beaten track. VentureCo provides travel with a purpose in the company of like-minded travellers. The company's combination ventures consist of three aspects: cultural orientation (language and culture), aid/volunteer work and an unconventional travel experience. In addition to the gap year and career break programmes, there are also summer programmes that provide all of the aspects of the gap year, but in a shorter time frame.
VentureCo's multi-phase travel programmes incorporate development projects, expeditions and adventure travel in Asia, Africa, South America and Central America. Considering a career break or a working holiday with a difference? VentureCo allows participants to combine these elements into their travel plans.
Gap Year Ventures are exclusively for school leavers taking time off before entering university or employment. Venturers are aged between 17 and 20 years old on joining the Venture and applicants come from the UK and overseas. Career Breaks are for professionals who wish to take a break from their career and take part in an international volunteering and adventure travel expedition. School and summer programs are also available for interested groups.
Language classes provided in South American programmes.
Ideas for fundraising are provided on the website.
