Gap Year Programs For Washington Young Adults

How do gap year programs help Washington young adults?

Gap year programs are a way for young adults from Washington to explore different parts of themselves and discover what drives them in life. Many young adults arrive at the threshold of college or their careers and feel lost or lack certainty about what comes next. 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. The positive things about gap year programs are also the faults: lack of academic credit or work experience while in a gap year program. If you don’t take the opportunity seriously, you may find yourself in the same situation: without a plan for the future.

Why choose Journey Home Young Adult for a therapeutic gap year program?

Young adults from Washington and around the world look to traditional gap year programs to step away from their day-to-day lives and experience something new and different. They look for programs that are related to possible interests-professional, educational, or personal-that they may have.
