What is the Gap Year Experience?
The Great Connections Gap Year Experience is a nine-month program designed for you to become an active participant in your education so as to discover what kind of life you want and how to achieve it.
In a small group of other seekers, you will explore new and exciting ideas, learn how to connect them with your knowledge and experience, and turn them into action.
