3rd Annual Gap Year Conference
Sunday, May 7, 2017 at 9:00 AM - Tuesday, May 9, 2017 at 12:00 PM (MDT)
San Francisco, California
London, United Kingdom
Join us for the 3rd Annual Gap Year Conference! This year will once again be cozying up to the IECA conference in Denver, which starts officially on May 10th. May 9th will be a marketing day for providers and attendees to take part in either the speed-dating Gap N Go event (for an additional fee), or to visit some local high schools in the Denver area.
This year's theme is Removing Obstacles - in the spirit of the Hindu deity, Ganesha - the intention is to remove obstacles and barriers to greater participation, especially with an emphasis on lower-income and improved diversity. The Gap Year sits at a crucial time in student development and maturation, and we hope to see more students participating in Gap Years than ever before!
What is the refund policy?
Refunds with more than 60 days notice prior to the event will be granted at 100% (minus any fees charged by Eventbrite or the payment processor). Refunds with less than 60 days notice will not be refunded unless by special arrangement. We are a small tribe and eager to keep the humanity in these details, so please write to us at AGA and we can discuss your situation.
Does the Gap Year Conference ticket include IECA Conference tickets?
Do I have to bring my printed ticket to the event?
No. Please save the paper and we have you on record.

When & Where
American Gap Association, Taylor the Gap Consulting, Dianna Hahn Consulting
The American Gap Association is a nonprofit Standards and Professionalization Organization for Gap Years as recognized by the US Department of Justice and the Federal Trade Commission. We work primarily to help spread the word about Gap Years by providing resources and information, as well as work to increase financial aid resources and improve the professionalization of the field.
Taylor the Gap is headquartered in Boulder, CO., and is run by Marion Taylor, an expert and experienced traveler as well as a Returned Peace Corps Volunteer. Marion offers nationwide consulting services for all ages interested in taking their own Gap Year.
Kevin Hermann Copywriting is led by, shockingly, Kevin Hermann, a previous Gap Year Conference volunteer, copy editor, Gap Year taker, and expert speaker on the topic of Gap Years.
We also have a cadre of selfless volunteers that include:
Dianna Hahn - a phenomenally talented new mother who cut her teeth in this field as the Executive Director of Global Routes, a well-know expert in the NAIS community, and consultant. Dianna has been leading the effort for the Gap Year Conference Presentations and we are lucky to work with her.
Jennifer Miller - an incredibly low-paid editor and collaborator with AGA, Boots N All, and the chief director for both the AGA Blog and the Open Source Curriculum project.
Madelaine Eulich - another previous Gap Year Conference volunteer, and recent addition to the Summer Search family in Boston - they are lucky to have her.
