Description
Interested in a Service/Gap year before continuing your education or finding a traditional full-time job?  Wondering about why students choose a Service/ Gap year? Students choose a service year or gap year as a stepping stone to the next phase of their lives, whether that be undergraduate, professional or graduate schools, or a career. The driving motivator for most applicants is the desire to do meaningful work. In return for their commitment, participants receive a stipend and scholarship. These types of opportunities are open to all majors.

At this event, meet with recruiters from City Year, Peace Corps, SAGA Innovations, and Housing Action/Americorps VISTA to learn how you can use a gap/service year to find purpose, not just a paycheck.
