408: Re-Inventing The Pathway Between High School And College With Abby Falik
Today's interview is with Abby Falik, the founder & CEO of Global Citizen Year, a for-purpose social venture on a mission to make it normal for kids to choose a bridge year after high school: an experience that builds self-awareness, global skills and grit – the foundations for success in college, and beyond. Their core program gives high school graduates from diverse backgrounds the opportunity to spend a “bridge year” living and working in a foreign country —learning a new language, navigating a new culture, asking big questions, clarifying their life purpose, and building real-world life skills — before jumping into college.
