The Gap Year Project
What has long been a tradition in Europe, the GAP year experience is rapidly becoming a popular option for North American families. Many parents recognize that their university aged child may not be ready to commit to post secondary studies. These students will benefit from a year of skill building, self-discovery, independence and adventure in order to prepare to launch into the next big step of their lives. Yet many parents express concern that the GAP year be more than a grand holiday on the beach in Thailand, or slinging espressos at Starbucks. The Gap Year Project provides a meaningful GAP year experience that will fulfill many functions
- Increase opportunities for university/college admission by improving GPA or earning AP credits.
- Enhance academic and personal skills to be set up for success in undergrad
- Develop confidence, self sufficiency, esteem and self regulation
- Build social and emotional intellectual reasoning along with maturity and social sophistication.
