Gap Year Programs For New Jersey Young Adults

How do gap year programs help New Jersey young adults?

Young adults from New Jersey look for gap year programs that allow them to discover more about their goals, their passions, and their motivations while forming their identity. Many young adults arrive at the threshold of college or their careers and feel lost or lack certainty about what comes next. Without a clear decision, many New Jersey young adults decide to select an alternative and finite option that will help them gain clarity and certainty.

What are the pros and cons of gap year programs?

Gap year programs are very appealing to high school and college age students: they provide a specific amount of time that has fun activities, reduced responsibilities, and allows them to put off final decisions about what comes next. The perceived pros of gap year programs, like lack of academic credit or relevant work experience, work against students in the long run. If you don’t take advantage of what a gap year program can offer in helping you make more intentional decisions, you may find you are still stuck without a plan for the future.
