Explore Our Gap Year Abroad Programs

The only way to know if you truly enjoy something is to experience it firsthand–that includes your college and/or professional field of interest. Moving beyond high school with a sense of clarity from a gap year abroad will make your future decisions more focused and intentional.

Our Gap Year Abroad program gives participants the opportunity to explore interests and develop valuable skills after high school graduation. It’s a great way to cultivate interests, motivate your studies, and build confidence in your future college and professional decisions. Whether your interests tend towards the environment, health and medicine, teaching, language-learning, animal activism, etc. there is sure to be a program to fit your needs.

Our Gap Year Abroad program is open to participants over the age of 18. If you are still currently in high school and under the age of 19, we invite you to explore our High School Abroad option.
