College applications, choosing a major or a career path—it’s overwhelming to consider all of the options. But guess what? You don’t have to be certain about your future just yet. Consider a gap year. It’s the only time in your life where trial and error is encouraged, experience is an investment for your future self and you’ll learn so much about what you do and don’t want—you’ll have a much better sense of who you are and where you want to go.
There is no better way to start that journey than with an Outward Bound course designed for gap years—with options like exploring tropical ecology in Panama while earning a SCUBA certification or experiencing a new culture while completing a service project in South America. You can earn college credit and will return home with a sharper sense of direction, a better understanding of your potential and the life skills needed to reach your goals.
