Gap Year Programs For Rhode Island Young Adults

How do gap year programs help Rhode Island young adults?

Gap year programs are a way for young adults from Rhode Island to explore different parts of themselves and discover what drives them in life. Many young adults arrive at a crossroads after high school or college graduation and feel lost despite their accomplishments. Many Rhode Island 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. 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.
