Gap Year

This is a one year scheme giving you the opportunity to serve God in Christian Ministry whilst gaining a wide range of experiences. During this year you would live as part of our Team community here at Min-y-Don.

The main aim of the year is for you to serve God with us here and be discipled as a young Christian. If you wish, there would also be opportunity to gain experience towards outdoor pursuits qualifications in kayaking, canoeing, rock climbing, mountain walking and bushcraft.

With our Christian ethos and the nature of the work at Min y Don there is an occupational requirement for applicants to have an active Christian Faith.  Successful applicants will take part in weekly team prayer meetings and discipleship group as well as planning and delivering short teaching times to school and family groups on Christian principles and values.

Gap Years at Min y Don also provide opportunity for the following:
Instructing and assisting with outdoor pursuits activities
Youth and children’s Work
Working and living as a team
Preparing and delivering a Christian message to guests and local youth
To gain outdoor pursuits qualifications including First Aid

Whilst many gap year programmes ask you to raise money and pay to join it – we enable you to live and work as part of a team. Your pay each month takes into account all your living expenses whilst you reside on-site here at Min-y-Don. You would also have paid holiday entitlement.

Min y Don is situated in a stunning area of the Snowdonia National Park. To learn more about the Centre and its work please call 01341 250433 or Contact Us for further details and an application form.
