Gap Year Advice–A Presentation

DefaultImage

Last week I was invited by Denver Academy to give a presentation on GAP year programs.  Denver Academy serves students who have a variety of learning differences.  My aim with the presentation was to make two points:

1.  A Gap year is a productive time for young people.  It is “stopping out” of school, not “dropping out.”

2.  A Gap year might seem like an expensive proposition, but when that cost is balanced against the fact that the average time to complete a Bachelors degree is 5 years, and that a GAP experience can arm a student with greater maturity and a stronger direction, parents may actually save money in the long run by funding a Gap year.

I’d be happy to answer questions about Gap experiences, and to make recommendations to you.  In the meantime, feel free to take a look at the GAP year PowerPoint presentation that I delivered at Denver Academy.
