      My son had been working with Jane and Jason even before COVID showed up. They displayed a vast knowledge of not only available programs around the world, but also a very insightful perspective of the gap year process. They took the time to help my son think long and hard about what he wanted from a gap year, and how to develop a plan to meet that end. Jane and Jason were incredibly committed to helping my son find a program where he would really fit in and build relationships as well as pursuing his personal goals. When Covid hit, and international opportunities began to shrink, J2Guides didn’t miss a step. My son was presented with new options for what to do with his gap year. Jane and Jason helped him match to a program that fits him like a glove. He is thriving with new levels of independence, self reliance, daily adventure and great new friends. He called yesterday after finishing five days rafting the Grand Canyon. (I am so jealous). With the rest of the year still to plan, Jane and Jason continue to be a valuable resource with many ideas for the spring. I am so appreciative for the guidance and support my son has received from J2Guides. His gap year would not have been the same without their help.

    • Saved my teen's Gap Year!!

      I am a parent of a 2020 highschool grad who was all set to go on an international Gap semester before enrolling at Middlebury college in Feb 2021. Obviously, none of that could happen during this unprecedented time and like many other parents, I watched my teen's plans crumble before her eyes. With the help of J2Guides, she was able to pivot and plan a totally different domestic Gap semester, including figuring out WHY she was even taking a Gap year, budgeting for it, deciding between several fabulous options and is right now, taking part in an incredibly enriching, safe, challenging program right here in the States. Because of this program and the fact that her college is just not going to be the same as she expected, she has decided to take an additonal semester off, defering enrollment until Sept 2021. As a parent, I am eternally grateful to Jane and Jason because they have taken on the role of mentor, advisor, cheerleader and guide at a time when hope is hard to come by and teenagers don't always want to hear their parent's advice. I can wholeheartedly recommend their program, their integrity, knowledge, enthusiasm for both travel and education, plus the fact they are WALKING THE WALK.
