Here at EF, support isn’t one-size-fits-all. There’s our on-the-ground presence in 114 countries (that’s the big, sweeping kind). But there’s also the team we build around every student that takes a gap with us.
From day one, you can lean on your EF people for the kind of one-to-one support that’ll make a huge difference in your gap experience.
Each EF Gap Year student is paired with a dedicated Program Advisor who will be a mentor, emergency contact, and main support person throughout your program experience. Always an email, text, or quick phone call away, your advisor is there for you whenever you need.
The true magic of any EF program is our on-the-ground staff. Our Local Guides and Field Directors are there to help you get the most out of your experience and provide the expertise and insider perspective that will make for an unforgettable trip.
Unlike other gap year organizations, we insist on overseeing every aspect of your program ourselves—it’s the only way we can maintain our strict quality standards. Our Program Operations Team is on the front lines, working closely with partners around the world to ensure that your EF Gap Year experience runs smoothly.
