So, you took a gap year because you wanted to figure out what you want to do with your life - what a wild thing for the world to expect from you when your only 17 to 25 years old!
You probably had tons of ideas of what you could do this year, but now you're half way through and have NO idea how to take action and feeling totally unmotivated when you see the lack of sunshine outside.
Knowing that winter is the most challenging time for Gappers to reorient their gap year, we wanted to ensure you had a safe and supportive space to make the most of what's left of your time.
So, join us for our 1-day gap year goal setting and planning workshop. By 5PM, you'll be clear on your gap year WHY, what you want to accomplish, and how to take action on making your dream gap year a reality.
Here's what the day will look like:
Guided gap year planning
support from Canada's leading
gap year expert.
Recognizing that students were not being provided with enough opportunity to get hands-on experience to develop life skills, Michelle left the classroom to explore other ways of helping young people find direction and fulfilment. She worked to train other teachers, she instructed outdoor education, she traveled for pleasure and for work and researched what today’s youth really want and need.
All of her life experience drove her to the same conclusion – we need to slow down and give young people the space and time to figure out who they are and to engage in meaningful experiences.
Michelle founded the Canadian Gap Year Association as an antidote to business, mental health challenges and young adults feeling confused and unfulfilled. She has committed her professional life to giving families permission to slow down so their kids can be the best version of themselves and make a healthy transition into adulthood.
