Summer is here, and even though La Niña is harshing our vibes, this is the first summer in a fair while where we’re finally vaccinated, and ready to get back to the lifestyle we’ve been craving – and, what better way to do that than starting a new year with a stacked giveaway and an adventure via the New GAP Year?

If you’ve been craving a change of scenery, and are keen to make some new friends and gain some new skills, the New GAP Year is for you. By connecting freshly-graduated students like you to a new adventure while gearing you up for all sorts of opportunities and experiences in regional Australia via Thankful4Farmers, you’ll be making a meaningful and tangible difference, as well as gain a summer of memories before you hop into the real world and uni.

Whether you’re thinking of choosing to GoAndPick or to GoAndPour for your GAP year, The New GAP Year has partnered with Training Services NSW to ensure there are free training courses for you to learn up on a large range of industries, especially through the agricultural and hospitality industries with labour shortages caused by border closures.
