Chattanooga, Tenn. – Why take a gap year? The best way to learn about gap year options and connect with gap year program providers is to meet them in person at a USA Gap Year Fair. With more and more students choosing to take gap time each year, there is a growing need for students, parents, and educational professionals to become aware of the advantages of taking "time out" from traditional education and "time on" for experiential learning.

USA Gap Year Fairs is an annual circuit of 40+ events that bring together reputable gap year organizations, interested students and parents, educational professionals, and gap year experts across North America each winter. As the premiere event series of its kind, the fairs have provided students with a broad exposure to gap year programs that encourage active learning through travel, cultural immersion, service, work experience, and mentorship for the past 12 years. Opportunities for face to face conversations with gap year program providers, trip leaders, advisors, and gap year alumni offer attendees a personal and individualized experience. Each event begins with a presentation by gap year advisors and alumni. These gap year experts provide attendees with a rich overview of the gap year option, share relevant data, highlight authentic student experiences, and provide tips and resources to help guide families through gap year research.

In 2018, USA GYF was acquired by Go Overseas (www.GoOverseas.com), the leading site to discover gap year programs through alumni reviews, articles, and scholarship information. With a mission to empower human connection through perspective-changing travel, Go Overseas is dedicated to growing the event circuit, starting with the 2019 series.

Last year, the USA Gap Year Fairs series drew nearly 7,000 students and parents to explore gap year options. This season, the Chattanooga fair will be held at The Baylor School on Tuesday, February 12 from 6:00-8:30 PM. The presentations for the events will feature gap year counselors and local gap year alumni who will share their expertise with fair attendees.
