Gap Year Programs For New Jersey Young Adults

How do gap year programs help New Jersey young adults?

Gap year programs are a way for young adults from New Jersey to explore different parts of themselves and discover what drives them in life. Many young adults arrive at a crossroads after high school or college graduation and feel lost despite their accomplishments. Amidst this uncertainty, many New Jersey 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. 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.
