What is a Gap Experience and Bridging the Gap seminar?
A gap experience is taken after school before college or after college before starting to work. It is a combination of travel, exploration and learning something totally new that helps you to discover your strengths, interests, boost confidence, self-awareness and independence.
Bridging the Gap is a unique virtual seminar that highlights the positives of taking a Gap experience programme to be able to make a right choice for a career path instead of rushing it in.
More and more American graduates and off late Indian students are doing just that - postponing college to engage in a potentially life-changing gap experience. Ranging from service-learning trips all over the world to organizations closer to home that serve local communities. The benefits of time taken off after high school, regardless of what the students pursue during that year are many.
The benefits of a Gap experience are many. Students who have taken a gap experience are typically more focused, more mature, and are more prepared to take advantage of all the opportunities that higher education affords. The significant confidence and personal growth from taking a gap experience helps them define themselves more clearly from the very start of college. And that in turn, helps them come closer to realizing their own potential as students while in school.
