L'Arche GAP is a paid gap year spent living in community with adults with and without intellectual disabilities. Starting in August, you will attend a 3-day welcome retreat before heading to your respective L'Arche placement across the US. During the year, you will participate in monthly reflection and sharing time with your cohort and you will also have the opportunity to travel and experience life in antther L'Arche community.
We are seeking applicants who are open to living in community, building relationships, and making memories, regardless of their background. The skills that you will acquire at L'Arche can help you to stand out in any field. Past L'Arche Assistants have gone on to become nurses, lawyers, teachers, researchers, and so much more!
Community is at the heart of what L'Arche is. Our gap-year cohort program is designed to connect members to L'Arche communities across the country as they learn, grow, and build relationships with new people.
