Gap Year Programs

What is a Gap Year program?

A gap year is a year off between life stages, and for many, it comes between graduation of high school and entering college. The mention of a "taking a year off" can make many parents uneasy, but there are ways to use that year to benefit the student and keep them on track to pursue higher education. The key is in the planning. A well planned Gap year can give a student time to mature and have financial benefits, plus it can give a student real world experience that can help shape career goals.

Some reputable Gap Year options:

City Year

AmeriCorps `

National Outdoor Leadership School
