Gap Year Programs For Vermont Young Adults

How do gap year programs help Vermont young adults?

Gap year programs are a way for young adults from Vermont 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. Many Vermont 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?

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 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.
