Apply Now


Congratulations on deciding to apply for a placement with Lattitude – it’s the first step on an amazing journey!

New Application Deadline

We have decided that, in light of the current Covid-19 situation, the application deadline for Lattitude Gap Year programmes abroad in 2021 will now be pushed back until 1st June 2020. This doesn’t mean you have to wait that long of course!

We are still receiving applications and are conducting interviews remotely at present. Please be aware that placements abroad are limited, so the sooner you apply, the more likely you are to secure a position within our programmes.

Many of our destinations do reach capacity early each year, so make sure you get your foot in the door and apply before 1st June to avoid disappointment!

IMPORTANT NOTICE: Temporary Programme Suspension

The ongoing COVID-19 crisis has required all of us to adapt and rethink how we conduct business. We have decided to consolidate programming for 2021 and reduce our offerings to the destination countries where Lattitude is able to send a greater number of volunteers. This will allow us to work efficiently with reduced staffing while maintaining the high level of support to our volunteers that we pride ourselves in. For this reason, we are temporarily suspending our programmes in Argentina, Ecuador, Guatemala, Japan, USA and Vietnam. We do hope and expect that we will be able to offer these wonderful programmes again in the future. Thank you for your patience and understanding.


Before you start:

  • You will need to provide the contact details (email and phone) for TWO people who can act as referees. They must be somebody you know in a professional capacity (teacher, employer, sports coach etc – NOT a friend or friend of your family.)
  • If you need to, you can always save your application and come back to complete it later.
  • You should have a credit/debit card handy to pay your application fee of $150 NZD.
