Teach & Play Sports in Kenya
Kenya is ‘Lion King’ country and one of Africa’s most scenic. From forested highlands to rolling savannah grasslands, from palm-fringed beaches to world famous national reserves and parks. Combine all these with the smiles, the glamour and cultural variety of its people.
Our Kenya programs offer an unparalleled experience made up of warmth, colour, huge vistas, sunsets, dust and adventure.
Our goal is to create global citizens – people who can see the world from another perspective and who are passionate about making the world around them better.
On our Kenya programs, you will live and work alongside the locals in one of our partner communities. You’ll make an impact by contributing your skills at the same time as having the opportunity to see a different side to Kenya – one built on friendships and understanding.
You’ll find yourself challenged in ways you won’t expect, be inspired by the people you meet and learn more than you can imagine. You may even find your second home…
Kenya Gap Year Program
The AV Kenya gap year program gives you the opportunity to live and work in a rural part of the Mt Kenya area of Kenya, about three hours from Nairobi.
Our projects are based in a village in Timau, at the foot of Mt Kenya, 22 km from Nanyuki town. Here you will gain an understanding of everyday life with the friendly Meru people, away from the hotel lined beaches and luxury safari camps; you’ll have the chance to make a meaningful impact on the community over an extended period, becoming a genuinely valued member of the village.
Become part of the community As part of a group you will live in the middle of a community, learning about the local culture, engaging and connecting with people with lives vastly different to your own. It’s about sharing your skills and knowledge in a way that is useful to them.
Make an Impact We are passionate about the difference you can make and we work with each participant individually to ensure you can use your skills to make a meaningful contribution.
Independent, supported travel On the longer, 12-week projects, you can choose to include four weeks of independent travel, whilst still making use of our 24/7 in-country support.
Gap Year 100 We are committed to taking a maximum of 100 per year on our gap year programs. As a non-profit, AV’s focus is on providing both volunteers and our partner communities with the best experience possible and by limiting our numbers we ensure we can treat every applicant individually and place them where they can have the most impact.
AV programs are no ordinary gap year experiences, it’s a community of individuals with shared experiences and we are with you long after you get back from the project. “Once an AV, always an AV.”
