Global Citizen Year programs give recent high school graduates a chance to explore the broader world while doing something worthwhile. Adventure abounds and the rewards are innumerable but what exactly is a gap year program and how can you join Global Citizen Year? We'll walk you through the details of this life-changing opportunity.
A gap year volunteering or travel program 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. The best gap year programs 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.
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.
