Gap Year Programs For Oregon Young Adults

How do gap year programs help Oregon young adults?

Gap year programs for young adults from Oregon 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 Oregon 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. 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.
