Gapforce (www.gapforce.org) is an organization specializing in overseas volunteering and conservation projects, work placements and internships, lasting from 2 – 16 weeks. Their Head Office is in the UK, and due to growing interest from US students, they are now looking to branch out into America.
As a bit of background – Gapforce is an established provider of structured Graduate and Undergraduate programs overseas. They offer volunteering placements, expeditions and internships across 5 specialist divisions, but I am including here only the one that would interest pre-meds:
