You want to take a gap year between high school and college, but what are your options? You could spend a year backpacking and see the world. Maybe do some community work and boost your resumé. Perhaps take on an internship to learn new skills or earn college credit.
Or, you could spend that time with Global Citizen Year and accomplish all three — along with much, much more.
You're faced with a lot of choices for life after high school. With so many routes to take, which one is best for you? Global gap year programs are a wonderful way for post-high school students to explore the world and do something exciting yet meaningful before college, plus they help you develop life skills and a better understanding of yourself. Global Citizen Year's bridge year is a program that allows you to do more than just volunteer or study abroad. With a full eight months immersed in another country, working with locals and participating in the culture and customs, you leave with a wealth of real-world experiences to better equip you for college (and life).

It can also give you the time and experience to help make tough decisions, like what you truly want to study or what career to pursue. And that’s just the beginning.
