We are proud to announce that one of our advisors, Amanda Thomas, will speak at an upcoming event hosted by Youth Connect and Sewickley Academy about the benefits of gap years. At Forging Futures, we believe that taking a gap year between high school and college can be a great option for students to develop their passions and mature before heading off to college.
Amanda, along with Lynn Sanborne, a counselor at Sewickley Academy will discuss the value of taking a gap year and how students can benefit from various gap year opportunities. In addition, two students who took gap years and one of their mothers will attend the event to talk about their experiences and the impact that their time away from school has had on their lives. A question and answer session will follow.
The event, entitled, “Gap Year: How a Year ‘Off’ Can Be a Life-Changer” will take place on Monday, April 16 at 7 p.m. at Sewickley Academy Senior School. Parents and their students in grades 10-12 are encouraged to attend! Hope to see you there! Gap Year Event Flyer
