Gap Year Programs For Pennsylvania Young Adults

How do gap year programs help Pennsylvania young adults?

Gap year programs for young adults from Pennsylvania 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. 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 perceived pros of gap year programs, like lack of academic credit or relevant work experience, work against students 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.
