What is a GAP YEAR at IALA?

The IALA VISION is to develop the potential of young adults while exposing them to different adventures.

A South African gap year for students in STILBAY, Western cape.

A group of young adults will have a life-changing experience during 32 weeks of adventure, in locations ranging from the cool sands of the Fish River Canyon, the misty cliffs of the Western Cape coast line , the forests of the Garden Route and the natural wonders of the  Eastern Cape shores.

The IALA GAP YEAR programme focuses on self-discovery through adventure.
