Gap Year Information

Gap or Service Year Abroad

For the past few years, there has been an increasing interest in gap years amongst US college-bound students, to the point that there are now multiple “gap year fairs” each year (similar to a college fair, but focused on gap year opportunities). See http://www.usagapyearfairs.org/index.html for gap year fair information. The remaining links here are to specific programs, or to services that aggregate and curate information on multiple programs.
