WILLIAMSTOWN -- Jane Sarouhan, vice president of The Center for Interim Programs in Northampton, will lead an information session for interested parents and students, "The Gap Year Option: What Is It, and Is It For You?" on Tuesday, Nov. 13, at 7 p.m.
Parents and teens who are curious about the possibilities, strategies, costs and benefits of taking a "gap year" in between high school and college are invited to attend.
This event is sponsored by the Mount Greylock PTO and will be held in the meeting room at Mount Greylock School, 1781 Cold Spring Road.
Since its founding in 1980, The Center for Interim Programs has developed a database with over 6,000 programs, placements and opportunities all over the world, including group travel programs, low-cost volunteer options, job-like placements, language schools, wilderness options, academic semesters, research trips and much more.
Sarouhan will be joined by four Williams College students who took "gap years" before coming to Williams. This panel of experts will share options, tips and real-life experiences.
