Overview

Description

9 Months. 10 Countries. 100 Skills The Winterline Global Skills Program is a unique and innovative 9-month global gap year program, offering high school graduates and young adults the opportunity to step out of the ‘rush to and through college’ and explore what they really want to do with their lives. We believe that high school graduates are much better prepared for college – and for a fulfilling career – when they take the time to explore a wide variety of interests and skills. During the 9 months, students experience a variety of global contexts, from rugged mountains to tropical preserves to the cultural capitals of Europe, students learn and apply a rapidly increasing array of new skills and connect these experiences to future career options. Students travel in groups of 20-25, along with two experienced advisors and work with a personal teaching chef. They stay in a variety of accommodations, from tents to cabins, youth hostels to mountain lodges, village camps to boats. All of the teaching will be hands-on and experiential - there will be almost no classroom time at all! Typically, students move from location to location every two weeks. Along the way, they’ll get plenty of unstructured time to socialize with peers, pursue individual interests, explore local attractions, and recharge. Weekends are often free, as well as various cultural, touristic and community visits that are optional. To ensure the best possible experience for students, Winterline Global Skills Program has partnered with established world-class organizations to deliver the experiences that make the program so unique. Partners include: the National Outdoor Leadership School (NOLS), Outward Bound, The Sea Turtle Conservancy and the Smithsonian Tropical Research Institute (STRI) for conservation skills, the Comprehensive Rural Health Program for medical skills; BMW for driving and US First Technology Challenge for robotics. Winterline Global Skills Gap Program is a global gap year experience like no other. Find out more at winterline.com
