Are you interested in taking a gap year or taking a summer program? For the past 15 years, USA Gap Year Fairs has partnered with US high schools to educate, inspire, and empower students to look beyond the classroom and pursue opportunities for experiential learning. Taking a gap year might seem intimidating, but it’s actually much easier than you think — especially when you know there’s a community of gap year experts and enthusiasts to help support you.
