Personal and spiritual growth
You will grow personally and spiritually through the CORE Gap Year program. Personal coaching and group sessions are designed to help develop leadership skills and discover and clarify your calling. Specific classes, team devotions, and group study will go in-depth into understanding the Bible, its application to our daily lives, and our future careers.

Life changing experiences and adventure
Hike the Appalachian Trail, canoe the Delaware River, serve those in need, teach preschoolers, serve and interact with multicultural groups, catch a show on Broadway, explore the Adirondack Mountains, explore New York City, and so much more!

Professional Coaching and growth
You’ll grow professionally through intentional coaching and working with our amazing staff and being with each other. We will also be using The Birkman Method as a framework for self-awareness and personal growth and development.
“As iron sharpens iron, so one person sharpens another.” Proverbs 27:17

Authentic community and lifelong friendships
Spending a majority of your time with wonderful people will create friendships sure to last a lifetime. You’ll be eating, sleeping, and breathing with the CORE community. But don’t worry, if you need a little break from time to time, there’s a Starbucks right down the street!
