Choose your adventure.

Making the choice between starting college and taking a gap year can be daunting. You might crave the adventure of getting real world experience across the globe, jump-starting your career. But 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 gain practical hands-on experience that will make you a better candidate in the future. The leadership and foreign language experience you’ll gain in a gap year add stand-out skills and experience to your resume before you step foot on a college campus, putting you ahead of other college students when you start looking for competitive internships.

While you’re on your gap year, you’ll have the opportunity to do meaningful work in education, agriculture, small business or environmental conservation. And the best part - you’ll still have college waiting for you on the other side.
