Gap Year Programs For Wisconsin Young Adults

How do gap year programs help Wisconsin young adults?

Young adults from Wisconsin 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 arrive at a crossroads after high school or college graduation and feel lost despite their accomplishments. Without a clear decision, many Wisconsin young adults decide to select an alternative and finite option that will help them gain clarity and certainty.

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. 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. Traditional gap year programs offer experiences related to personal, professional, or educational interests they may have.

At a basic level, Journey Home Young Adult is similar to gap year programs in this regard: the young women at Journey Home Young Adult are transitioning to a new place to spread their wings. The experiences that our young women have had prior to coming to Journey Home Young Adult are different from students looking for traditional gap year programs. Journey Home Young Adult helps young women ages 18-23 that have made significant progress with emotional, behavioral, or mental health issues. The young women we work with have all successfully completed a residential treatment program before coming here.

Journey Home Young Adult offers an independent yet supportive environment for young women 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. Salt Lake City is consistently named as one of the best cities for young people to live and work. Call (801) 444-0794 to learn more about how we can help you on your journey!
