WE PREPARE COLLEGE-BOUND HIGH SCHOOL GRADUATES FOR SUCCESS IN HIGHER EDUCATION THROUGH DOMESTIC AND INTERNATIONAL LEARNING ADVENTURES.
What is the Kivu Gap Year?
The Kivu Gap Year program PROVIDES COLLEGE-BOUND HIGH SCHOOL STUDENTS THE OPPORTUNITY TO TRAVEL THE WORLD, EXPERIENCE DIFFERENT CULTURES, AND DEVELOP THEIR FAITH. DURING THE PROGRAM, STUDENTS HAVE THE CHANCE TO BUILD STRONG COMMUNITY WITH OTHER STUDENTS AND EXPLORE WHERE THEY ARE BEING CALLED VOCATIONALLY. THE KIVU GAP YEAR PROGRAM STRONGLY CONSIDERS THE SAFETY AND RISK MANAGEMENT OF THE TRAVEL EXPERIENCE WHILE ENCOURAGING STUDENTS TO STEP OUTSIDE THEIR COMFORT ZONE TO HELP THEM GROW INTO THEIR TRUE SELF.
So thankful for host families like Addie's who welcome students into their homes for two weeks here in Jordan! Host families help students get a realistic picture of life in every country we visit - the experience wouldn't be as valuable without them!
Students are loving their Jordanian host families! It is such an incredible gift to become friends with people from different cultures and walks of life. #kivugapyear #jordan
Today marks the official launch of the "good treating" campaing in Santa Cruz Bolivia. We all stand together together to say no more violence towards women and children. We believe that we we can recognize value and worth in the "other". So much fun getting to raise awareness for such an important cause here in Latin America.

During the time in Jordan students are in class at the Ithraa Center where they are challenged to develop their emotional intelligence and work to improve their relationships by giving first. These next two weeks are packed with teaching that provide tools to better love others!
Awesome day at Petra with our new and old Jordanian friends, looking forward to another two weeks here!
Gap Year students all together with our partner here, Paz y Esperanza, to celebrate the birthday of @joshuabenjamin77!! To hear more about what we are doing in this beautiful country, go to kivugapyear.com #emergingadults #latinamerica
Loving life at the Dead Sea! We took advantage of a little mineral treatment before heading to Wadi Rum today with our Jordanian friends. #kivugapyear
Took some time today to read the Beatitudes on the same hill Jesus taught the Sermon on the Mount. Thankful for our time here in the Holy Land - traveling to Jordan tomorrow!
