Gap Year Abroad Gap Year Abroad with CIEE

A gap year is a big step—one that means letting go and stepping outside of your comfort zone. It's a year in which you’ll have the chance to step out into the world, gain valuable life experience and skills, and begin the transition into independence.

CIEE Gap Year Abroad offers you the tools to create a custom program built around your needs, and the resources and support necessary to explore a new culture in ways that were previously unimaginable.
