Approach

Mission

Gap Year Guru coaches individuals through the often daunting process of creating a meaningful gap year. We provide customized, comprehensive support services before, during and after the gap year experience. This unique approach empowers clients to discover themselves, the world and their distinctive place in it.

Process

We believe that for a gap year to be truly meaningful, you should be connected with all that happens before, during and after the actual experience. That’s why we work with clients throughout the entire process.

  • Prepare: Create a meaningful gap year
    We coach you on deciding whether or not a gap year is right for you. Once this decision is made, we help you discover what you want from the experience, explore the possibilities, create the experience and prepare for an incredible journey.
  • Experience: Maximize it!
    We will help you make the most of your gap year experience, which includes transition and culture-shock coaching, logistical assistance, and health & safety consultations.
  • Integrate: Apply learning 
    Your gap year doesn’t end when you come home. Our re-entry coaching will help you adjust to reverse culture shock and identify and apply what you’ve learned to the next stages of your life.

Didn’t start your gap year with us? Already have ideas for what you want to do? No problem. We welcome new clients at any stage of process.
