Have you ever thought about taking time off to
ride your bike across the United States?
conduct research in the Amazonian rain forest?
work on a presidential campaign?
build houses for the poor?

Tens of thousands of students each year take a break before, or even during college to work, travel, volunteer, or do something just plain different. No matter what you may plan to do with your time away, Taking Time Off shows you how to make the most of it. Included are the inspiring stories of 26 students whose pursuits in their time away from school were fulfilling and enjoyable. You’ll find practical advice on every aspect of planning a break, from researching your options and financing your leave to convincing your parents it’s a worthy idea. This book’s resources section also lists programs, jobs, and American and international organizations that can help you to plan your own time off.
