New Program Announced: Inaugural Gap Semester Cohort. Learn More!

Gain Real World Experience.

Your Gap Year culminates by taking your learnings and putting them to work in the real world. Whether you participate in a professional internship, a volunteer placement, a job or continue to develop your own projects, this phase gives you the opportunity to do the work that will impress employers, colleges and of course, yourself.

Where will you gain experience?

Participate in a traditional internship. Volunteer. Get a job. Start a business. Develop your portfolio. 

There are multiple ways you can advance during Internship Phase. You could end up working for a venture-funded startup in Silicon Valley, becoming an apprentice for a local artist, or contributing to a non-profit changing lives around the world. The goal is to take what you have learned through the first two phases and immediately put them into practice to propel yourself forward.
