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 giving back to a community, making a meaningful difference. But college has always been the plan.

The thing is, you can do both with Global Citizen Year. Our gap year program allows you to take a year to dive deep into meaningful work alongside your community on issues that matter to them, and stay with a host family to make it feel like home. You’ll do purposeful work in education, health, or social enterprise. And the best part - you’ll still have college waiting for you on the other side.
