Global Citizen Year Recieves the Karl Haigler Excellence in Research Award

The Gap Year Association has awarded Global Citizen Year the Karl Haigler Excellence in Research Award in recognition of our research demonstrating the transformative power of immersive experiences.

This is a particularly meaningful award for us as Global Citizen Year has always held a deep commitment to ensuring our experiences deliver the impact we design for.


We invest in a higher-than-average standard of research to measure how our programs equip young people with the perspectives, skills, and networks to solve humanity’s most urgent challenges.


We invite you to check out our award-winning research in the Stanford Social Innovation Review and in our Academy Impact Report.


Research on our newest innovation, Take Action Lab is already underway and we look forward to sharing those results in the near future!


We send immense gratitude to our students, alumni, and supporters for helping us create and measure such meaningful impact. And we thank the Gap Year Association for recognizing our leading research.
