About USA Gap Year Fairs

USA Gap Year Fairs is a national circuit of events that bring together reputable Gap Year organizations, interested students and parents, high school college counselors and the Gap Year experts. These events are designed to provide students with a broad exposure of Gap Year Programs and the opportunity for face to face conversations with the people who work in the field. For students and parents interested in Gap Year, these fairs are the legitimate source to connect with reputable organizations that focus on Education, Service and Personal Growth.

Over the past 5 years, USA Gap Year Fairs has grown from 7 events to 30 events nationally. The popularity of Gap Year is growing at an exponential rate in the United States and the demand for these events has increased dramatically. This year there will be fairs in major cities including Atlanta, Charlotte, Boston, NYC, Washington DC, Baltimore, Chicago, Denver, Los Angeles, San Francisco, San Diego, Portland and Seattle.

In each city, USA Gap Year Fairs is hosted by one of the leading public or private high schools. The fairs are designed for a population of students who share a variety of interests, who come from diverse financial backgrounds, and who are interested in pursuing a wide array of professional fields.

USA Gap Year Fairs also feature a speaker at each event who provides an interactive approach to Gap Year and the variety of offerings. There is a question and answer session with each speaker so that interested students and parents can learn about the entire Gap Year process; from applications, to deferring freshman year, to re-entering college when they return. In the past, such speakers have included Rae Nelson and Karl Haigler who co-wrote the well known book, The Gap Year Advantage, as well as Holly Bull from the Center for Interim Programs.
