Gap Year Programs For Texas Young Adults

How do gap year programs help Texas young adults?

Young adults from Texas 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 Texas 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 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.
