This nine months of action-packed learning is designed for adverture-seeking folks between the agesof 17 and 23. The The High Desert Center Gap Year is an affordable program for young adults who are looking for adventure, practical experience, community and a sense of purpose.
The High Desert Center is homespun and informal. We inspire rather than coerce. We dumpster dive and challenge you to be real. We get dirty. We think big. We teach the skills that change your life, like how to make everyday life an adventure, how to take care of yourself, how to make a difference, how to connect.
Our participants don’t want to sign up for a program; they want to create the program. They don’t want rules; they want choices and opportunities.
How do you want to lead your life?
The High Desert Center specializes in helping you figure that out and begin doing it.
