About This Workshop

Over the last decade universities are finding their new students struggling more than ever to adjust to life away from home. Social anxiety, the inability to connect with others and the grind of performance during their high school years all contribute to a need for young adults to decompress, become independent in a safe environment and to be guided as they experience new surroundings, ministries and people. Studies have shown that gap-year students do better in college, and have a better understanding of who they are and what their gifts and life-direction should be.
