Gap Year Programs For New York Young Adults

How do gap year programs help New York young adults?

Gap year programs for young adults from New York 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 New York 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 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. If you don’t take the opportunity seriously, you may find yourself in the same situation: without a plan for the future.
