We believe that a gap year should offer more than just travel or service. Our Global Gap year is our signature program. You'll live, explore, and learn in six countries over two semesters with new friends who'll be with you for life. This is the ultimate program for students who want to make the most of their gap year and yearning to discover how they can create meaningful change in the world.
Explore the challenges and solutions to critical global issues in communities around the world.
