Gap Year Programs For Utah Young Adults

How do gap year programs help Utah young adults?

Young adults from Utah 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 feel like they still have no direction after graduating from high school or college. Without a clear decision, many Utah 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?

High school and college-age students are attracted to gap year programs because they sound like a great way to have fun and postpone responsibilities for a while. The perceived pros of gap year programs, like lack of academic credit or relevant work experience, work against students 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.
