Gap Year Programs For Virginia Young Adults

How do gap year programs help Virginia young adults?

Gap year programs for young adults from Virginia to discover more about themselves: their mission, their passions, what drives them in life. Many young adults arrive at a crossroads after high school or college graduation and feel lost despite their accomplishments. Amidst this uncertainty, many Virginia 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. 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.
