Gap Year Programs For Washington Young Adults

How do gap year programs help Washington young adults?

Young adults from Washington 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. Many Washington 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.
