Searching for a community of fellow gap year students? Look no further…

A gap year provides a lot of room for independent growth, but we know sometimes it can be intimidating, isolating or just create FOMO when you’re on your own.
That’s why we created Gapyearly Connect, the first global network of gap year students. Every month you opt in, we’ll match you with a group of fellow gappers with similar interests!

9 individual photos of Gapyearly's mentors and members, smiling and facing the camera.
