What is a guided gap year anyway?

Learn how we optimize your gap year experience

Gap years aren’t just for people who are lost, they’re for people who want to make sure they’re heading down the right path. They want to pause, experience life, gain insights and wisdom that will ensure their investment of time and money in an education is spent well or before taking the leap into their first post-graduate job. A gap year can be a year of accelerated growth and development – a year that makes all the difference. But only if it’s done well and with support. That’s what we do.

Guided Work Experience

We support you while you’re working to ensure an optimal experience and then we help you evaluate that experience and extract insights that will guide your way forward.



You are expected to work through the online Accelerant Program - complete monthly coaching sessions with your Flame Finder Coach - engage earnestly in paid work, or volunteer work, and/or college-credit courses taken at institutions of your choosing and at your cost, and you're expected to put in your very best effort.


We aren't here to bore you, lecture you, or show you lots of PowerPoints - we're here to ACCELERATE your development and IGNITE YOUR WAY forward in your career and life. We do this because we love it - we're good at it - you and the world need it - and we like getting paid for it (which is called our Ikigai - and you'll learn all about that in our program). We need you to bring a little joy, a little pizzazz, a little energy to the process. Are you fired up? Cuz we're fired up!


What, you thought we did this for free? Making money is important - for you and for us. The cost of the Guided Gap Year Program is $4,550 if you can pay all at once, or for a little more money you can space those payments out over 9 months (the duration of the program) and pay $595 per month.

Our Promise

Discover Direction and Purpose

The combination of our online Accelerant Program and our Flame Finder Coaching is a one-two punch like no other. You haven't ever experienced anything like this in school or in a guidance counselors office. You'll emerge with direction and purpose and we'll guide you there one step at a time.

Gain Experience and Clarity

There's no way to achieve clarity while sitting on a coach somewhere. We will guide you into and through the experiences needed to help you get clear about the DIRECTION that you want your career and life to go. It's our experiences that give us perspective and perspective will help you gain clarity.

Life Accelerated

The irony of this whole thing is that taking a gap year actually will accelerate your development. That's because instead of wandering semester through semester or from job to job, you'll be building your career deliberately and with purpose: making each course, each internship, and each job count.
