Gap Year Programs For New York Young Adults

How do gap year programs help New York young adults?

Young adults from New York 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 feel like they still have no direction after graduating from high school or college. Without a clear decision, many New York 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 appeal to young adults based on the fun activities it offers, reduced responsibility and the opportunity to postpone making significant life decisions. The perceived pros of gap year programs, like lack of academic credit or relevant work experience, work against students 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.

Why choose Journey Home Young Adult for a therapeutic gap year program?

Traditional gap year programs offer young adults from New York and around the world the chance to step away from their day-to-day lives and experience something new and different. They look for programs that are related to possible interests-professional, educational, or personal-that they may have.

At a basic level, Journey Home Young Adult is similar to gap year programs in this regard: the young women at Journey Home Young Adult are transitioning to a new place to spread their wings. The difference between Journey Home Young Adult and other traditional gap year programs is the experiences that our young women have had prior to coming to our program. We work specifically with young women ages 18-23 that have had emotional, behavioral, or mental health issues and have made significant progress with their struggles. All our students have had successful experiences at previous treatment program before coming here.

Journey Home Young Adult offers an independent yet supportive environment for young women from New York transitioning into adulthood. The vibrant city of Salt Lake City, Utah provides the perfect backdrop for this part of a young woman’s journey. Salt Lake is home to multiple colleges and universities that our students can enroll in while living here. And there is no shortage on professional and vocational opportunities: Salt Lake City is consistently named as one of the best cities for young people to live and work.
