Meet the students choosing a gap year rather than online classes: Editorial

Some postsecondary students have chosen to take a gap year, rather than taking part in online or uncertain methods of instruction, writes Jessica Wong of CBC. Wong says that many of these students are using a gap year to take an intentional break from school and to be productive. Students such as University of Alberta student Anthony Russell, who is taking a gap year to create art and teach art workshops at schools in Calgary, and Ryerson University student Stephen Mensah, who has taken a year off to dedicate to the Toronto Youth Cabinet, share how the experience has changed their future plans and provided them the opportunity to prioritize their wellbeing and growth.
