Gap Year Programs For Wisconsin Young Adults

How do gap year programs help Wisconsin young adults?

Gap year programs are a way for young adults from Wisconsin 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. Amidst this uncertainty, many Wisconsin 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 are very appealing to high school and college age students: they provide a specific amount of time that has fun activities, reduced responsibilities, and allows them to put off final decisions about what comes next. 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.

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

Traditional gap year programs offer young adults from Wisconsin and around the world the chance to step away from their day-to-day lives and experience something new and different. Typically, these experiences are related to an interest – professional, educational, or personal – that they have.

Like in other gap year programs, the teens at Journey Home Young Adult are transitioning to a new place to spread their wings. One difference is the experiences that our teens have had prior to coming to Journey Home Young Adult. We work specifically with teens ages 18-23 that have had emotional, behavioral, or mental health issues and have made significant progress with their struggles. All our students have had successful experiences at previous treatment program before coming here.

Journey Home Young Adult offers an independent yet supportive environment for teens from Wisconsin transitioning into adulthood. Our beautiful home just outside of Salt Lake City, Utah provides the ideal location for this part of a young woman’s journey. Salt Lake is home to multiple colleges and universities that our students can enroll in while living here. Many teens consistently name Salt Lake City as one of the best cities to live and work.
