People often talk about “life changing” experiences, such as a conversation with a famous person, or doing something very stressful or scary that challenges their courage. If you’ve often wondered what it would be like to have one of those experiences, it’s not too late to discover one. At Youth International, we don’t promise that your life will be dramatically altered or that a major shift will occur in your thinking; we simply provide the platform and the opportunity for those kinds of things to happen. With our gap year program and travel opportunities, you can take a step towards challenging and stretching yourself and your thinking, and perhaps encounter a life changing experience along the way.

If you’re not sure that you’re ready to travel to new continents and experience new cultures, that’s okay. All you have to do is contact us for more information or fill out our online application. We’ll follow that up with a phone interview where we’ll learn more about you and also give you the opportunity to ask more questions. The trips are mostly for those between the ages of 18 and 25, but there is a bit of flexibility with that age range. You may never feel completely ready to travel to foreign locales until you’re already there, but the important thing is that you took that step to challenge yourself.

Life changing experiences don’t occur every day and if they did, they’d soon become known as something else. If you’re ready to set out on your adventure, contact us about our gap year program today.
