Are fee-based gap year companies worth exploring?
Absolutely! Although some of these resources can be a bit pricey, they can often take a ton of legwork out of planning your trip. Whether it's finding you housing, placing you with a host organization, or helping you secure the proper visas, working with fee-based organizations can often be the most convenient and safest route to go when considering travel abroad.
SUNY Oswego actually hosted this organization on campus - the opportunities are endless, and we encourage you to check them out.
http://www.frontier.ac.uk/ Frontier was established in 1989 as a non-profit conservation and development non-governmental organisation (NGO) dedicated to safeguarding biodiversity and ecosystem integrity and building sustainable livelihoods for marginalised communities in the world's poorest countries. 2009 marked an important milestone for Frontier as we celebrated 20 years of delivering safe, relevant and successful projects. Volunteers are welcomed by Frontier staff and partners to take part in a wide and diverse range of projects in over twenty countries on every continent worldwide except Antarctica. All of our projects are long-term partnerships between Frontier, local NGOs and community organisations, government agencies and research and conservation institutes and all aim to build coalitions between stakeholders at the local, national, and international level.

USA Gap Year Fairs...
Many colleges actively encourage students to take a year off before starting college.
To help you structure your time out between high school and college, a whole industry of Gap Year organizations has sprouted. In the US, these organizations come together every year to present their programs at USA Gap Year Fairs. The fairs are sponsored by Gap Year organizations. The fair schedule is on the website.
