Gap Year Programs For Nevada Young Adults

How do gap year programs help Nevada young adults?

Young adults from Nevada 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 a crossroads after high school or college graduation and feel lost despite their accomplishments. Many Nevada 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?

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.

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