You learn the things that college doesn’t teach. The best way to describe the skills you learn are real world skills.

WITH US, YOU CAN HAVE IT ALL
Unlike most gap programs, we don’t ask you to choose between service learning abroad and focused skill-building in a professional setting. We combine these to create diverse experiences built to help you develop the skills, tools and habits you need to succeed in college and beyond.
WHAT YOU’LL LEARN
TOOLS TO NAVIGATE THE WORLD
“It’s not just the skills you’re learning, but it’s confidence; stuff you have to figure out yourself. People skills; you’re getting to know yourself better. You can’t really teach habits, and personal branding. But the way it's set it up, you’re guiding us to teach ourselves.”
Operations Coordinator, Covo
“When you are here you are confronted with your own potential, you are forced to embrace your otherness through travel, your dreams, your small ideas for innovation and are given time to hone in on what exactly that means for yourself and the others around you.”
“I have never been with a part of a group that supports me unconditionally, pushing me to pursue my goals even when I feel like I have nothing left in me. I know that I can call any staff member or fellow at anytime, even if it's been weeks or years since we've last spoken, I know that it'll always feel the same. They are my family and I feel so blessed to have a had this experience with all of them.”
