MACGYVER WORKSHOPS

Gap Year Odyssey:

Do you ever wish you had a few of MacGyvers’ skills?

 

Are you confident in towing a skier? Could you install your own washing machine? Have you ever welded a braai stand? Repaired your own surfboard? Or wired a light fitting? More than 95% of people contract other people to do these tasks. The Gap Year Odyssey program will teach you all these skills and hundreds more through hands-on workshops. These essential skills will be invaluable for the rest of your life (not to mention help you survive a zombie apocalypse).
