Thought we'd share a recent post about the Benefits of a Gap Year that appeared in the Teens, College, Career section of About.com.
According to the article, "The general progression of events seems to be: graduate high school, [and] attend college; but this may not work for all students. Some may choose to opt for a college alternative, rather than attending college. Others may have a desire to continue their formal education, but want to take a year off before doing so. This time off is often referred to as a gap year. While it may make some parents uneasy, there are many benefits of a gap year."
We couldn't agree more! Read the entire story here to learn about the countless benefits of taking a gap year. Perhaps it is the right next step for you?
