Life Coaching

Each gapper will be paired with a coach who will be with them throughout their gap year journey.  The coach and gapper will work together to define goals, evaluate strengths and values and to work through challenges that might arise over the course of the year.  The coach will help the gapper capture the learning that comes from each gap year experience that they complete.

Emotional Intelligence

mygapyear will connect the gapper with an EQ specialist who will work through an initial assessment and create a plan to help the individual realize their strengths, build upon areas of growth and identify how they can leverage their social and emotional intelligence.  At the completion of the gap year, a second assessment will be done to see areas of growth through thier experience.

Gap Year Plan Research

Our experienced team of researchers will take what is learned through the coaching and EQ sessions and build a customized plan that reflects the gappers goals and interests. Plans can contain travel, volunteer, work, and educational experiences both locally and abroad.  We will work with you over the course of the year to modify the plan based on evolving interests and needs.
