why take a gap yearWhy delay college for a year? There are at least 10 reasons you should take a gap year, and many extend well beyond just one year of your life.
The number of options available for gap years are as plentiful as those for colleges or careers. Sure, they’ll allow you traveling opportunities, but do they all prepare you for college? Or a career? Or life?
Taking a “bridge year” with Global Citizen Year is the best option for you because it combines all of the fun with selfdiscovery and skillbuilding you need to thrive at college and in life.
Going away to college is one thing. Going away on a gap year is something else entirely. Global Citizen Year is a bridge year program for those looking for something more. Does that sound like you? A bridge year offers so many benefits; experience new cultures, language, adventure, life-long friendships and life skills that will set you up for success in college. Develop life skills and global competency and an improved sense of self-awareness and understanding all while becoming fluent in another language.
A gap year volunteering or traveling abroad can be the adventure of a lifetime. During that year, you transition from high school to college or a career while learning more about yourself and broadening your world. A gap year travel program can be a wonderful experience, and can provide more than just traveling alone. So which program should you choose? At Global Citizen Year, we created this guide to help you see exactly how you can benefit from our bridge year program.
