ELEVATE - GAP semester

Program Dates: January 13 - May 8, 2020

Our ELEVATE program will provide young people (ages 18-22) with a variety of experiences designed to build confidence and to provide life skills training. The three components of this program are employment experiences in the hospitality industry (rotating through departments in our resort), outdoor adventures, and meaningful community service. 

Participants will complete the program better prepared to face upcoming challenges such as starting/finishing college, applying for/engaging in employment opportunities and living independently. They will live and learn as part of an intentional community within our YMCA center.

Throughout the semester, participants are guaranteed to gain life experiences and grow personally, travel, experience other cultures, gain work experience, and explore study and career options.
