Gap Year Programs For New Mexico Young Adults

How do gap year programs help New Mexico young adults?

Gap year programs for young adults from New Mexico to discover more about themselves: their mission, their passions, what drives them in life. Many young adults feel like they still have no direction after graduating from high school or college. Amidst this uncertainty, many New Mexico young adults look for alternative options to rushing into situations they are not prepared for in order to gain clarity.

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. Gap year programs are a double-edged sword, in which the perceived positives, like lack of academic credit or work experience, are actually negative in the long run. Also, without very intentional decision making, they can leave you in the same place you started: without a plan for the future.
