‘Step into the Gap’ on Your Gap Year!

Now is your chance for a year out experience with CAFOD and the Society for the Holy Child Jesus in partnership with St Mary’s College and YMT (Youth Ministry Team) that takes you places the guidebooks don’t.

Take an adventure that will change you and those around you – your journey begins and ends in the UK, but takes you to one of the poorest countries in the world to meet amazing people and share their lives. You will then use those experiences when you return to lead young people to a better understanding of how their faith helps them take action for change.

Step into the Gap offers a rounded experience, both overseas and in the UK, allowing you to explore and express your faith. It bridges the “gap” between adventure and new experiences while offering something to a wider community.
