Gap Year is creating globally literate students who enter the world with a fervent love for Jesus and others. Leaving them fully equipped to take their skills beyond their community.


Gap year partners

Our Gap Year program was designed with students in mind, to encourage global citizenship while building practical skills through rigorous academics. You no longer have to decide between exploring the world and getting your degree, with Gap Year you can do both.

“For some high schoolers, a gap year program like Trek Year allows them to work toward an academic degree while they are gaining experience.

For some, they are exploring what they really want to do in the future, developing in their identity and calling. A cross-cultural context where they get to participate actively in what God is doing on the ground at the Envision site allows them the space to hear from God and develop in their calling.”
