CityGAP is a city-based, outdoor exploration experience for rising college first-years, college students on leave, and high school graduates from around the world. CityGAP provides meaningful and challenging experiences in the New York City landscape, creating a COVID-safe and rewarding space for personal and intellectual growth. We use the built and natural environment as a collaborative outdoor classroom, where students wrestle with urgent challenges facing the city at this critical moment. Participants create both group and personal project, exploring their passions and interests while grappling with relevant current questions and seeking to make and impact on the world for the better. We create small cohorts of 8-10, use COVID-safe protocols, and have dorm-like housing available for students coming from outside of New York City.
- Outdoor and field-based, with minimal time online
