Choose your adventure.

Making the choice between starting college and taking a gap year can be daunting. You might love to travel, wanting to discover what you’re passionate about before earning a degree. But you’re torn on what path to take since college has always been the plan.

The thing is, you can do both with Global Citizen Year. Our gap year experience allows you to take a full year to dive deep into what lights your fire, doing meaningful work alongside the community and staying with a host family to make it feel like home. While you’re there, you’ll have the opportunity to volunteer in education, agriculture, social sciences or environmental conservation. And the best part - you’ll still have college waiting for you on the other side.
