Gap Year Programs For Ohio Young Adults

How do gap year programs help Ohio young adults?

Gap year programs are a way for young adults from Ohio to explore different parts of themselves and discover what drives them in life. Many young adults feel like they still have no direction after graduating from high school or college. Without a clear decision, many Ohio 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 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.
