Applying for the Gap Year Program is easy and free!

When you fill out our online application, you’ll be asked several basic questions as well as some essay questions to make sure the gap year program is right for you. The questions are about the skills and experiences you hope to gain from the program, what you hope to contribute to the program, prior experiences working with children, and three examples from your past that highlight independence and resilience. We’re looking for open-minded, enthusiastic, and energetic men and women between the ages of 18 and 22, preferably with experience working with children.
