So much more than just a gap year – that is our commitment to you!
Choosing TAKE ME UP is an important decision that will allow you to become an active participant in designing your future.

TAKE ME UP is a quality program where every team member, every workshop leader, every coach, and every partner is right there with you, making sure you have whatever you need to feel confident about the decisions you need to make.



  • Improve your academic results thanks to new-found maturity, increased self-confidence, and a positive mind-set; you’ll know where you want to go, why you want to go there, and how you plan to get there - and that makes all the difference!
  • Stand out from the crowd and get noticed! Nine out of ten young people who have taken time “off” during their education or before starting their careers confirm that they feel more fulfilled professionally and have had easier access to their dream jobs.
  • Gain new perspective and change the way you see the world: Learn to accept differences and understand other cultures and ways of thinking, living, or reasoning. Thanks to the TAKE ME UP program, you will meet people from all over the world and from all walks of life.
  • Feel good about who you are and what you are doing: Nothing is more important than believing in yourself when deciding what comes next in your education or in your career. You’ll make better decisions and know what direction to take without doubting yourself.



Consider that:

  • Less than 50% of all undergraduate students graduate on time. (source: MESR-SIS- Réussite en licence en trois ou quatre ans, cohorte 2016)
  • 80 % of students surveyed said they made a mistake when choosing their course of study. (source : Réseau 2019)

In addition, more and more young people today feel a strong need to bring meaning to their future.
