Choose your adventure.

Making the choice between starting college and taking a gap year can be daunting. You might want to pursue your love of traveling the world and exploring new places, people, and cultures. But college has always been the plan.

The thing is, you can do both with Global Citizen Year. Our gap year fellowship allows you to immerse yourself in a new culture, work alongside local communities on issues that matter to them, and stay with a host family to make it feel like home. You'll form lifelong friendships with your fellows, add a few stamps to your passport, and even learn a new language! And the best part - you’ll still have college waiting for you on the other side.
