The KIVU Gap Year is a one year journey around the world for High School Graduates. Before they go on to the University, KIVU introduces them to 6 different international locations, and gives the students a variety of internships and networking opportunities before they begin their first year at The University.
They study poverty, medical opportunity, education, and disaster relief. They climb Kilimanjaro, stay with host families in several countries, and all the while have a unique picture of how the world spins.
This year we begin our newest module in the country of Jordan. Our friends at Ithraa, a center for relational training, are eager to introduce the Middle East to our students. They'll see the ancient sites, work with locals in various initiatives, stay with local families, and learn some of the most important political conversations driving the Middle East today.
This particular module will elevate The KIVU Gap year among all other Gap Years. The KIVU Gap Year will now introduce American Urban Development, Disaster Relief, African Business Development, Middle East, and Far East Asia to the list of places a student will know well before they go into their own studies.
