Gap Year Opportunities

Gap Year Opportunities are typically one to two year post-graduate programs (length of time varies). Some may lead to full-time career opportunities while many will be short term experiences that help recent graduates further define their next step or longer term interests. These programs can include a stipend or may be on a volunteer basis.
