    "I had thought about taking a gap year for a long time, but it wasn't until I saw all the different options on TeenLife that I was finally sure. Searching through all the listings, I was able to find dozens of programs that matched my interests and budget, and it made my decision so much easier."

    - Jake, 17 Year Old

    "After the pandemic, we knew that we wanted our son to do something special with his summer, but we weren't sure what schools or camps would be right for him. TeenLife let us search by location and by our son's hobbies, and we were able to find the perfect summer program because of that!"

    - Nikki, Parent of 16 Year Old

    "It's been really great for my students to see gap year and out-of-school opportunities listed right next to the various colleges and universities on TeenLife. Knowing that there's all sorts of options and not one 'right' path has been very helpful to a number of teens as they decide what to do after high school."

    - Anna, College Counselor
