    Get up, get out and volunteer internationally! Your Gap Year is about adventure and fun. But it can also be about making a difference. Spend some of your Gap Year with AEI, participating in a life-changing Experience. AEI Experiences let you meet new people who love animals and travel adventure as much as you do. Surround yourself in a new country, new culture, and new way of thinking.

    There are so many benefits to partnering with AEI and volunteering with animal organizations overseas. International volunteer work provides opportunities for personal and professional development. These life changing experiences let you add to your knowledge and skill set, while making an important contribution to the project you are helping. AEI Experiences allow you to travel in a meaningful way – you are not just a tourist, you are part of the community,­­ supporting the important work being done by our placement partners. They can help you make important decisions about your own life direction. And they let you explore a new country, become part of a team, and form lifelong friendships. Use your dedication and passion to help animals, while adding to your own personal knowledge and experience!

    At AEI, we take care of you every step of the way – making sure you are prepared before you leave, matching you with your perfect AEI Experience, and taking care of you in your host country while you are away. AEI Experiences allow you to volunteer hands-on with animals under the guidance of vets, vet nurses/technicians and scientists. You will be picked up from the airport by a member of the host organization and taken to the project. Your accommodation and meals are arranged for you, and you will receive the training and guidance needed to be a successful member of the team. And each of AEI’s placements include plenty of opportunities to have fun as you get to know the community where you are staying.

    AEI Gap Year placements include:

    Sea Turtle Conservation in Costa Rica

    Dog Rescue and Animal Care in Mexico

    Dolphin Conservation in Croatia

    Dog Rescue and Care in Spain

    When you travel with AEI, you know that we have done all the work to ensure your trip will be ethical and beneficial to all involved. Included in your experience is pre-departure training on cultural sensitivity, child safe traveling, culture shock, and ethical travel. Be assured, we have personally visited and assessed all AEI programs. Our partners are ethical, humane, community-based organizations in need of dedicated volunteers like you. We are with you every step of the way to make sure your travels are worry free and that you will have the time of your life!
