For a limited time, we are offering our GYBC package for only $999!
This is it! If you need help and guidance and don’t quite have the confidence to navigate this gap year business by yourself, you’re absolutely at the right place! We scour the globe for exciting opportunities that will fit your personality, talents, and passions. We focus on finding programs that are uniquely suited to YOU! We want your gap year to be your best year ever AND to contribute to your future.
The Gap Year Consulting package offers families hands on, personalized consulting, advising, support and training. We begin with an extensive survey to determine your goals for the year, aptitudes, and program preferences. In our introductory conversation we will review the survey, discuss gap year fundamentals, and our roles as Gap Year partners. When we feel comfortable, Gap Year Base Camp will go to work researching the best possible plans for your Gap Year within your budget! Much like a college counselor, we will find programs and opportunities that enhance and support your interests and goals. We’re excited just thinking about it!
