2015 Global Citizen Year Application: Part 1
If we are to ensure that today’s youth become the compassionate and committed global leaders of tomorrow, it is imperative that young Americans have direct experiences with the conditions in which the majority of the world’s people live."
Founder & CEO, Room to Read
Many people think a gap year is a privilege for wealthy kids. Others think a gap year program is a remedial option for kids who are "off-track". Our mission is to reframe the traditional gap year as a Bridge Year. With Global Citizen Year you aren't falling into a 'gap'; instead you are crossing the bridge that will launch you from one life stage to the next. Let's stop calling it a gap year; and start calling it a bridge year.
