Gap Year with a Purpose
A popular trend recently has been to take a year off after high school, calling it a "gap year." Many students see this as an opportunity to take a break and relax. However, there are also many students who take this year to set a foundation for the rest of their lives. This session will discuss the importance of that foundation and how a student can effectively take a Gap Year with a Purpose.
