Gap Year Programs For Rhode Island Young Adults

How do gap year programs help Rhode Island young adults?

Young adults from Rhode Island 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 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. 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 the opportunity seriously, you may find yourself in the same situation: without a plan for the future.
