WHAT WE OFFER

OUR 3 PART PROCESS

We work with you in three parts so you can get the most out of your gap year.  Our approach is holistic in nature, meaning we understand that one person's experience does not happen in a vacuum. We integrate a mind-body-heart approach with every individual and their family.

ACTUALIZE

Return from your experience and get the support in actualizing your newly discovered values, skills and passions.
We help you create an action plan for next steps after your gap year.  Whether college, career, or continued exploration is where you're going, get involved in local activities and community projects to maintain and continue to develop. We coach every family through the inevitably emotional process of embarking upon and returning from a radical journey.
