You want your students to succeed. So do we.
At Discover Year, we help young adults better understand what they want out of their future and build the skills they need to go out and get it.
We’ve created this webpage and the resources below to give educators a better sense of what Discover Year is, why it’s unique, and how students of all backgrounds can benefit from a structured gap year.
How we can be available to support you
We would love to meet you to provide more information about Discover Year! In addition to hosting monthly virtual information sessions, here are some of the other ways we can be available to you, your students and your School Board:

Gap Year: A Path to Purposeful Education
While the concept of a “gap year” remains relatively undeveloped in Canada, we believe there has never been a better time for young adults to pursue a structured, purposeful year as a stepping stone to post-secondary education or the workforce.
Listen to Discover Year founder Jay Gosselin’s TED Talk on why gap years could be the path to more purposeful education.
