As the world of education goes increasingly virtual, events and fairs are too. This is great news for families with teens because there is no travel involved - and most of these virtual events are free to attend by parents and students. Our team at TeenLife is on the lookout and will share the most interesting fairs, panel discussions, webinars that are taking place in the weeks and months ahead in this blog. Be sure to bookmark this post! We will also share a link in our monthly newsletter, so sign up if you are not already on our email list.

TeenLife LIVE Virtual Gap Information Sessions

This event will feature live presentations by six gap programs each hour, including a Q&A session. Gap programs are unique experiences designed for students 18 to 24 that increase self-awareness and expose students to life beyond school. Students that take a gap year after high school tend to be more engaged in their classes and campus organizations. The event is free but pre-registration is required. Once you are registered you'll receive a notification two weeks before the event where you can sign up for one or more hourly sessions. Parents, students, counselors and advisors welcome!
