Spend time learning abroad

Begin your gap year experience with Year On by setting out to one of our international locations to volunteer and immerse yourself in a new culture. 

Venture to Mérida, a thriving town in the Yucatan with amazing food, bustling markets, music, dance, and parks. Teach English, care for disabled children or adults, or work on an environmental protection project. Then head to San Francisco to explore your interests, work with a coach, and learn real-life skills.
