Oyster is a well regarded Gap year organisation specialising in challenging voluntary projects and paid work abroad.† Oyster prides itself on its personal approach getting to know every participant before departure. Many participants come to us through recommendation.
Most of our projects have been founded and nurtured by us over the past ten years. Popular examples include being paid to work in a Canadian Ski resort to coaching sport in Africa.† Our goal is to enable you to immerse yourself in a different culture with a small group of like-minded individuals and take on new challenges while helping others. Each placement has its own unique qualities, whether it's teaching and trekking in Nepal or working with brown bears in Romania. Uniquely we also offer paid work in leading Canadian Ski resorts and French speaking Quebec as well as guaranteed farm work in the Australian Outback or city work in Sydney.
Our support is second-to-none, with an experienced destination manager, in-country staff and full financial protection from our ATOL bond. For group departures we also provide a comprehensive pre-departure course.
