EP 15 - How Abby Falik & Global Citizen Year Are Rethinking Pre-College, Post-COVID

In this episode

COVID put a wrench in the college admissions process that forced students, educators, parents, and the like, to reimagine their future. My latest guest on Next with Novo, Global Citizen Year’s Abby Falik, is one of the country’s top experts on kids transitioning from high school to college or taking a year off before. Abby’s organization rethinks the concept of a gap year with a program that takes seniors and prepares them for what’s to come through a unique recruitment process and a variety of programs that help shape their trajectories by focusing on leadership and values. My conversation with Abby outlines the difficult transformation of the college admission process due to COVID, the inequalities and pressures that have built up over time, and what Global Citizen Year is doing to build a new path for students. Abby also shares a ton of insight and advice for students on how to capitalize on this time in the best way possible. As a father whose own kids have gone through this process, this episode was particularly relevant to many of my own experiences. Hope you enjoy.
