Learning & Serving

Meaningful solutions to challenges facing communities require more than giving to charity or simple volunteer projects. Explore how education, public health, and social care can lead to empowerment and sustainability. Develop the skills and perspective to serve communities and lead organizations effectively.



Foundations & Community

Your 10 week experience begins with a 3 week intensive Impact Corp training with our TBB Country President. You’ll gain the skills and perspectives needed to learn and serve in your internship. You’ll live with your Foundations Group and work alongside community leaders providing crucial early childhood development services. Together, you’ll create an exciting learning community that’s engaged with local issues and prepared to take on individualized placements.

Live in a homebase with other interns and volunteers, and you’ll receive the support of TBB staff. You’ll put your training into action with an impact work assignment in a struggling community school, supporting the development and educational goals of primary school students.

Gap Year Program Reviews

Success Stories

“Anyone wishing to have a gap year experience that gives them the chance to marvel at the world’s wonders, make a rewarding community service impact, and learn more about oneself should do TBB. It transformed how I see the world, my country, and myself. Now, I feel more fulfilled and know how I want to cultivate a meaningful life as an agent of change.”

Meg Stolberg

Latin America Gap Semester

“I had the most wonderful, enriching, mind-widening, and memorable three months of my life. Not only was I able to dive into new cultures and become parts of 2 wonderful families, but I also learned the importance of asking questions and got inspired by seminars about education and sustainable agriculture. This program definitely covers all spectrums you would want a gap year program to cover and can make your gap year meaningful!”
