Gap Year Programs For North Carolina Young Adults

How do gap year programs help North Carolina young adults?

Gap year programs for young adults from North Carolina to discover more about themselves: their mission, their passions, what drives them in life. Many young adults arrive at the threshold of college or their careers and feel lost or lack certainty about what comes next. Many North Carolina young adults who feel unprepared for this transitional period decide to look for alternative options that will help them gain clarity.

What are the pros and cons of gap year programs?

High school and college-age students are attracted to gap year programs because they sound like a great way to have fun and postpone responsibilities for a while. 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.
