We're calling the movement, Let's Get Global. All the information you need to do that Gap Year is on: www.letsgetglobal.org. Come on over.
Doing an international Gap Year between high school and college changes lives.
- A Gap Year builds character, opens eyes and hearts, and builds respect and understanding for everyone in the world.
- College becomes more meaningful. More and more colleges are recommending that incoming freshmen take a year off to discover themselves and the world.
- A resume with international experience is a major plus in today's global economy. Crossing cultures and sharing lives creates perspective, flexibility, and respect. The corporate world understands that if the U.S. wants to be a leader in the world, we need to understand the world we want to lead.
