Adventure Collège du Léman

Over to you

Our gap programme has been designed with you in mind. It’s a life experience that will put you ahead of your peers and give you the assurance that you have what it takes to succeed. You will be inspired, learn new skills, make lifetime friends, have fun and discover places you never knew existed.

Classroom Collège du Léman

You will be a full-fledged member of our Leadership Academy Programme and School of Entrepreneurship, practice your skills as a leader on a mountain top, create your own entrepreneurial project, do a corporate traineeship, rub shoulders with professionals, do volunteering work in Zambia, go skiing, go travelling and learn how to be successful at job interviews.

A dedicated team of professionals will mentor you throughout the year and create a framework for self-reflection, individual coaching and personal growth. One of the key concepts of our gap year is flexibility. Each person applying to our programme is unique and valued. That’s why we listen to your needs, your desires and your aspirations.
