Gap Year Programs For South Dakota Young Adults

How do gap year programs help South Dakota young adults?

Young adults from South Dakota 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. Amidst this uncertainty, many South Dakota young adults look for alternative options to rushing into situations they are not prepared for in order to gain clarity.

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. 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 advantage of what a gap year program can offer in helping you make more intentional decisions, you may find you are still stuck without a plan for the future.

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

Young adults from South Dakota and around the world looking to step away from their day-to-day lives and experience something new and different consider the option of traditional gap year programs.

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

Salt Lake is home to multiple colleges and universities that our students can enroll in while living here.
