Make Your Gap Year Meaningful – Learn A New Skill

As most of us know, there is a “new normal” upon us. What this “normal” will look like for the future, we have no idea. With social distancing still in full effect and schools still on the fence about holding in-person classes, for those who are meant to be starting university in the fall it can be a confusing time. Many universities are not even considering holding classes on campus until at least January and some people are just not wild about the idea of online learning. Because of the uncertainty of it all and the possibility of taking online classes, many people are considering taking a gap year.

If you are one of those people that is thinking about taking a gap year, why not take that time to do something meaningful and learn a new skill? The Costa Rica School of Massage Therapy can help you with that!
