Gap Year Programs For South Dakota Young Adults

How do gap year programs help South Dakota young adults?

Gap year programs are a way for young adults from South Dakota 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. Without a clear decision, many South Dakota 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 appeal to young adults based on the fun activities it offers, reduced responsibility and the opportunity to postpone making significant life decisions. 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.
