Gap Year Programs For Pennsylvania Young Adults

How do gap year programs help Pennsylvania young adults?

Gap year programs are a way for young adults from Pennsylvania to explore different parts of themselves and discover 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. Without a clear decision, many Pennsylvania 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. The positive things about gap year programs are also the faults: lack of academic credit or work experience while in a gap year program. Also, without very intentional decision making, they can leave you in the same place you started: without a plan for the future.

Are there gap year program alternatives? 

It’s important to find a program that is an appropriate fit for you, as there are a variety of alternatives to gap year programs available. Some young women from Pennsylvania find Journey Home Young Adult in Salt Lake City, Utah as an alternative to a gap year program. Just like in a traditional gap year program, our students come from all over the United States, including Pennsylvania. Journey Home Young Adult helps young women ages 18-23 who have successfully completed a treatment program but are looking for a supportive environment that will allow them to be more independent and challenge them in all the right ways. Call (801) 444-0794 if you think Journey Home Young Adult could be the right program for you.

Why choose Journey Home Young Adult for a therapeutic gap year program?

Young adults from Pennsylvania and around the world look to traditional gap year programs to step away from their day-to-day lives and experience something new and different. They look for programs that are related to possible interests-professional, educational, or personal-that they may have.

At a basic level, Journey Home Young Adult is similar to gap year programs in this regard: the young women at Journey Home Young Adult are transitioning to a new place to spread their wings. The experiences that our young women have had prior to coming to Journey Home Young Adult are different from students looking for traditional gap year programs. Our program is designed to help young women ages 18-23 that have had emotional, behavioral, or mental health issues and have made significant progress with their struggles. All our students have had successful experiences at previous treatment program before coming here.

Journey Home Young Adult offers an independent yet supportive environment for young women from Pennsylvania transitioning into adulthood. Our beautiful home just outside of Salt Lake City, Utah provides the ideal location for this part of a young woman’s journey. Salt Lake is home to multiple colleges and universities that our students can enroll in while living here. Salt Lake City is consistently named as one of the best cities for young people to live and work. Call (801) 444-0794 to learn more about how we can help you on your journey!
