GAP YEAR PROGRAMS WITH PURPOSE
We empower students with the ability to create fulfilling college and professional careers that will result in a more just and equitable world. Choose from our two incredible gap year programs: the Global Gap Year and the Ecuador Gap Semester.
WITH TBB’S GAP YEAR PROGRAMS YOU’LL GAIN:
• Ownership of Your Learning – Find your passion for learning again before starting college.
• Community – Peers and Program Leaders who share your drive and commitment.
WHAT MAKES TBB DIFFERENT FROM OTHER GAP YEAR PROGRAMS?
Intentionality. Students transitioning to college have specific needs as learners and people. They need independence. They need to engage real world issues. They need peers to process and share their experiences.
But, they also need support. They need adult mentors whom they trust. They need intellectual stimulation. They need structure as they explore their values and beliefs. Gap years are productive when learning and growth needs are met. TBB is intent on meeting students’ needs as learners and people. As a result, we create young leaders with direction, passion, and vision. These factors ensure TBB alumni succeed in college and address critical global issues.
Thinking Beyond Borders is a US non-profit. Founded in 2007, our mission is to empower and inspire students through education to address critical global issues. Read more about the leadership Thinking Beyond Borders is bringing to the gap year market in the New York Times, Huffington Post, Time Magazine, Forbes, and MSNBC. We also serve as co-presenters of the USA Gap Year Fairs. You can follow TBB on Facebook, Twitter, and our blog.
