Gap Year Programs For Tennessee Young Adults

How do gap year programs help Tennessee young adults?

Gap year programs are a way for young adults from Tennessee to explore different parts of themselves and discover 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. Many Tennessee 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 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.

Some young women from Tennessee find Journey Home Young Adult in Salt Lake City, Utah as an alternative to a gap year program. Just like in a traditional gap year program, our students come from all over the United States, including Tennessee. Journey Home Young Adult helps young women ages 18-23 who have successfully completed a treatment program but are looking for a supportive environment that will allow them to be more independent and challenge them in all the right ways. Call (801) 444-0794 if you think Journey Home Young Adult could be the right program for you.

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

Young adults from Tennessee 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. Typically, these experiences are related to an interest – professional, educational, or personal – that they have.

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

Young women from Tennessee and across the country have come to Journey Home Young Adult to successfully transition into adulthood in an independent yet supportive environment. Our beautiful home just outside of Salt Lake City, Utah provides the ideal location for this part of a young woman’s journey. With access to multiple colleges and universities, our students can enroll in college while living here.
