The 2019 USA Gap Year Fairs!

Every year, USA Gap Year Fairs travels across the country, bringing together reputable gap year organizations, interested students and parents, high school college counselors and gap year experts. They are an excellent opportunity to educate yourself about the options and speak face-to-face with dozens of programs.

Hoping to meet YOU during the 2019 circuit!

Each fair begins with a keynote address that goes over the benefits of a gap year and goes over the types of opportunities available. Following the talk, the fair operates similarly to a college fair.

Below you’ll find the details for the fairs that EnRoute will be attending this year. For a full schedule, click here. EnRoute director Julia Rogers will be co-delivering the keynote at all of the fairs below, unless indicated.
