Gap Year Programs For Oklahoma Young Adults

How do gap year programs help Oklahoma young adults?

Young adults from Oklahoma 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 the threshold of college or their careers and feel lost or lack certainty about what comes next. Many Oklahoma 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. 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.
