Webinar Recap: The Gap Year Advantage

Webinar Recap: The Gap Year Advantage

Thank you to Holly Bull from the Center for Interim Programs, for sharing her time and expertise with us on Wednesday February 23.

Holly shared a wealth of information about The Gap Year Experience and a great list of considerations for students and parents alike.

* A Gap Year is a time to explore interests.
* All ages, learning styles, and levels of experience can explore a Gap Year.
* The benefits include improved self-motivation, self-confidence, college/career clarity, job post college, awareness of personal finances, relevance of studies to the world and more.
* On average, students perform at higher levels than non-Gap Year students.

There are four Gap Year Programs:
1. Gap year facilitated programs
2. Skill-based programs
3. Urban internships and
4. Volunteer work experience placements.
