“Lagom” is a Swedish word meaning “just the right amount.”
Our gap year program provides 18-23 year olds a unique opportunity to build a strong foundation for adulthood.
We support students in discovering and pursuing their passions and gifts, while teaching them skills that will benefit them no matter what direction they choose.
Check out two students from Cohort 7 reflecting on their “Lagom Experience”:
Together, our students and mentors create inter-generational community each year on our 60+ acre property in the beautiful “Little Finger Lakes” of Western New York.
We take time to critically reflect on our selves and our culture, and live into the rhythm of creation with a curriculum reflecting the seasons.
Students work with mentors throughout the program and in self-designed internships, inspiring them to “land” into who they are, not just what they will do.
Through activities such as carpentry, gardening, caring for animals, service learning, journaling/book club, cooking/meal planning, and more, students learn what it means to live lagom.
