Gap Year in IndiaA break from your study gives an awesome opportunity to unveil the hidden talents and reshape the career. Therefore, when you are on such a break, involve yourself in such activities which sharpen and develop the skills while refreshing you for the coming battle ahead.

Working in India as a volunteer is an excellent way to spend the gap years as this amazing country has to offer you many things. In a Gap year, all that the students need is some beautiful memories which can distress them. Being a volunteer and utilize your skills for those Indians who deserve it, benefits you in multiple ways.

During the Gap year in India, you meet and interact its people and experience the rich culture of this country closely. To many volunteers, who joined Gap Year Travel programs in India, consider that enjoying few weeks in a culturally diverse nation, rejuvenated them to the great extent. At iSpiice, you will enjoy the optional Add-on tours to the famous sites such as the Taj Mahal, Jaipur, Trekking in Himalayas, Golden Temple and Manali adventure tour. You will enjoy all adventurous activities during your Gap Year Travel programs in India to ensure the most exciting experiences for students.

Spending some days in India is not about having fun only. Rather, in such trips, apart from being an explorer and volunteer, you become a learner also. In these days, you come in touch with new people, get familiar with their lives and know how you can help them. Our programs, designed for gap year students are challenging enough and come with huge learning opportunities. As the people whom you will serve, are from a different culture, you may have to learn many new things including their language and their rituals- making volunteering a whole new experience. During the stay in India, you will make new friends and expand your network which will provide you lifelong benefits.

We offer the volunteers a number of Gap Year Travel programs in India which suit people with different education and skills.

All Gap Year Volunteer Programs in India are listed below.

At iSpiice, we mainly work for the development of women and children who belong to the deprived classes. Our programs are designed in such way so that we can make their lives better through different activities. Some of the programs run to help this needy section of society in learning new subjects including English and Computer while the others target for promoting health awareness among them. Even we assist the underprivileged communities in their renovation works too.

How do the volunteers contribute?

The volunteers, who want to work with us, become part of the programs. Based on the skills, each volunteer is made responsible for different activities. According to the schedule, volunteers need to complete the given tasks and achieve their targets.

Typically a Volunteer of iSpiice needs to work for 5 hours in a day. During this span, they can work for maximum two programs on basis of their choice. While working in a program, volunteers may encounter different problems. To handle these, they are guided by iSpiice professionals all the time so that the things get done smoothly. The Weekends are kept free usually. On these days, iSpiice arranges optional tours to nearby sites. The volunteers, who wish to know more about India, can avail these trips to the popular tourist destinations.

If you are thinking of taking a break from your regular schedule and looking for something new, do not waste time. Make a plan for spending the Gap Year in India and book our programs immediately.

Gap Year in India – Volunteer Review by Madeleine Allen, USA

Gap Year India

I can honestly say I have never felt more cared for in my life than in my time at iSpiice during my gap year in India. The staff have exactly the right balance between what a Western tourist needs, and immersing them in Indian culture so they feel absolutely at home and not like a tourist at all. I felt safe and comfortable at all times in a country so different to anything I had experienced before. The kindness of Indian people has to be experienced to be believed, those at iSpiice in particular.

I came away with a new sense of how good people can be, as well as a tummy stuffed full of the best food I’ve eaten (and pounds lighter, could there be a better place??) How to have the best of all possible worlds, travelling while feeling at home, the most wonderful scenery with plenty of time to see it around worthwhile work that benefits a community unlike any other you’re likely to have experienced, and shopping until you drop. I would go back tomorrow if I were able to do so, and stay longer this time to experience more of the seasons.


"I highly recommend iSpiice to anyone wanting an experience with volunteering in India. I was lucky enough to stay with iSpiice and it was one of the most amazing experiences I have ever had. The staff are so friendly and caring and made the experience even more enjoyable. I have become good friends with them all and many of the volunteers I stayed with.
