Hands on Experience, Plus College Credit

One of the best programs at Students International is Global Bridge. Sometimes called a “Gap Year”, Global Bridge is a full year of college accredited studies in the Dominican Republic. Students enroll in online classes while they are serving, ministering, and mentoring in the Dominican. It’s a great way to discover your passion, earn college credit, and find your calling, all while engaging in hands-on experience.

What Is a Gap Year?

According to Gap Year Association, a gap year is “A semester or year of experiential learning, typically taken after high school and prior to career or post-secondary education, in order to deepen one’s practical, professional, and personal awareness.”

Instead of going straight to college after high school, a gap year is a semester off where students can take a year off to discover themselves. Gap year programs are very helpful for students, and statistics show that students who take gap years or semesters usually finish school quicker than students who do not.
