All Kinds of News for June 05, 2019
Twenty years ago, taking a gap year was only something European high school graduates participated in. It has since become popular in the United States as more and more young adults are not in a hurry to graduate college and get on with their careers. More young people and their families are seeing the benefit of taking a year off of school to focus on personal development and growth through travel, adventure, and unique work opportunities.
While there are a number of traditional gap programs, there are not many options that serve young adults with specific challenges. Young adults who are struggling with depression, anxiety, executive functioning difficulties, or learning differences can find it difficult to find a program to address their specific needs. There is a scarcity of programs that can offer the adventure and culture of a traditional gap semester with the added therapeutic support that may be needed at the time.
Pure Life Adventure has increasingly been used as an opportunity for these students who are looking to start their gap years with a therapeutic focus. To that end, in 2019, we will be focussing a portion of our services to young adults who are looking for a therapeutic gap semester. Young adults transitioning between high school and college or opting to take a semester off of college, can now come to Pure Life to develop the skills necessary for their next steps towards adulthood.
