Transitioning to Adulthood is Not Easy
Gemba Gap Program is uniquely designed for young adults transitioning into adulthood. Our program assesses personality types, values, motivators, purposes, and passions. With this valuable information, we help structure paths for young adults, helping them transition into adulthood with a new-found focus on goals and aspirations. Our process is also valuable in helping parents understand their adult children, and how to best support them on their life journey.
What is the Gemba 現場 House ?
The Japanese definition of Gemba is “the actual place.” In the business world the definition refers to “the place where value is created.”
Our Gemba Gap Program located in Boise, Idaho is designed for 18-25 year olds who want to approach adulthood with a slower pace. Life moves at a fast pace and the transition to college and the working world is a big step. We want to join those young adults wanting to slow their pace, explore their interests, and find their purpose and path.
To partner with young adults to illuminate paths that serve their passions and purpose.
Our Gap Program is designed to help young adults choose an alternative path away from the traditional high school to college, vocational school, or career stereotypes. Transitioning to adulthood is not easy. Our process is customized to find options for differing personality types, learning styles, and aspirations. Our program undercovers interests and potential paths that help young adults find enjoyment and success in their life.
Your journey starts here.
How do we help you identify a path?
We believe that each person has an individual process in their development. Our team helps you develop a deeper level of self-awareness and understanding of both your strengths and career or vocational opportunities. From day one you will be a part of our community, our family, and our alumni. We respect that each of person is different and brings our own set of interests, talents, and gifts to our Gemba. This diversity is embraced and what makes us different.
What does a day look like?
Gemba Gap Program provides a combination of structure and individual customization. Once you have identified your path, we assist in supporting you on it. All clients will have a schedule, but each schedule looks different. If you have an internship, part-time job, or are taking a class (or classes) at Boise State University, it will look different. Our team works with you to customize and balance a path that works for you.
Where does my family fit in?
We understand that a person's family may see a different path than the one that you are on, or considering. The transition of becoming a parent of an adult is not easy. This is a process, and one our team embraces with your parents. Our team works in parallel with your parents to support the process and the paths you take. A premise to our program is asking your parents to trust and respect this gap time for you to calibrate a post-Boise Gemba plan.
Learning to Fall Well
Our philosophy includes many Judo 柔道 concepts. Ju-do means the Gentle-Way. Although judo may not look or “feel” gentle, all training initially targets learning to fall and particularly learning to fall well. We also have a great neighborhood dojo that our residents can try out!
