United Planet’s Gap Year/6-months+ Learning Exchange in Finland
Experience a Gap Year in Finland, one of the largest countries in Europe. Finland has held a unique global position because of its borders with Russia, Norway, the Gulf of Finland and the Gulf of Bothnia. Nearly one-third of the country lies above the Arctic Circle, with the coastal lowlands and central lake system making up the rest. Finland is lauded for one of the best public healthcare and education systems while many other public services (swimming halls, gyms, state-of-the-art libraries) are available to all at no or low-cost. Volunteers here find meaning through learning from Finland’s complex culture and sharing ideas.
Volunteer in Finland Dates: August 2017, January 2018.
Cost:
$10,265 (6 months), $13,645 (1 year).
