Looking into different options RE my 'gap year experience' later in the year. The idea of doing 8 or 10 weeks of volunteer work in national parks and traveling for the rest is quite appealing, for reasons I'm sure most can appreciate. I'm not really big on doing it because it's 'the right thing to do' or what ever, but the social side of it and having a solid set of plans would be good I think. Also would cut initial costs when i get there.
Apart from BUNAC, whom I'm aware of, who else is there that offers these programs? I'm under the impression that BUNAC are rather expensive for these programs, though maybe that I'm wrong to think that.
Ideally, I would like to go to washington state, but I'm reasonably flexible.
