Taproot Gap Year is a 9 month journey for students entering into college or who are already attending college but feel a lack of purpose and clarity about who they are and what they are getting from college. 

We offer students an opportunity to boost their college experience through intentional global travel, domestic and abroad cultural immersion, faith and personal discovery, and real-world apprenticeships.

After completing the Taproot program, students return to college with a renewed sense of purpose, a more grounded understanding of the world and themselves, and valuable hands on experiences to help them thrive in college and get established in life.
