Gap year programs provide students with the unique opportunity to learn valuable life lessons, engage in self-exploration, and in many instances develop a clearer direction for college studies. Often taken between high school and college, gap year programs challenge students through study, service, travel, and cultural exchange. Whether they have chosen a direction that is academic, special interest or travel-based, these programs teach through experience rather than in a typical classroom setting. The range of exploration is limitless. Students can experience different cultures first-hand, study community development or dive into environmental issues. They can learn how to be entrepreneurial, understand religion, or excel in sports, music or the arts. There are literally hundreds of gap year opportunities worldwide.
