Our Vocational Gap Year provides young adult men intensive instruction, training, and real-world experience in skilled trades (ages 18 -25). As students master carpentry, welding, or auto mechanics, they also experience what it means to put in a full day’s work and experience the satisfaction that comes with it. They learn how to work effectively for and with people. They learn what happens when corners are cut, when quality is sacrificed, when mistakes are covered up. In short, our students learn what it takes to have pride in their work. Our Vocational Gap Year program is dynamic and immersive. A student's course of study is individually tailored to their interests and can shift as those interests shift. Enrollment is limited, to ensure our instructors are able to give each student the time and attention they need and want. The Wisdom Ranch campus rests on a 4000-acre ranch in the mountains of Idaho. Here students not only receive formal instruction in trades such as carpentry, welding, and auto mechanics, they also have the opportunity to apply those skills on the ranch. There is no better “on-the-job-training” than this. It is this independent, real-world experience that ensures our students are in demand in today’s world.
