what are gap year programsWhat is a gap year program? An adventure after high school. A bridge to a broader world. A chance to learn more about yourself and the world around you.
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).
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.
Why take a gap year? A gap year, also known as a bridge year, can help you transition from high school to college. It can help you learn and appreciate a culture outside of the United States. 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.
