Photos of the Week 11/16

While many of us are wrapping our heads around our first flakes of snow, our gap year students have been soaking up the sunshine and rainforest air in Costa Rica. For the past week, our two squads have been in Rancho Mastatal learning about sustainability, and Monteverde working on their Independent Student Projects, or as we call them, ISPs. Check out the photos below to learn more about the skills they’ve been learning and the adventures they’ve been having!

Every Friday we will be putting together our favorite photos and travel highlights from the past week. So be sure to check back again next Friday for another glimpse into our programs. If you haven’t already, be sure to check out last week’s photos as well.

Photos of the Week 9/28

It’s the last Friday of September! Can you believe October is almost here? Our Global Skills Gap Year students have spent the last week on an expedition with NOLS Southwest, and we are so excited to hear about their adventures, now that they’re returning. While on their wilderness expedition, our students have been learning skills like how to sleep outside and stay warm, cooking over a single burner stove, navigation, and prior to their departure, they learned Wilderness First Aid. Next stop for these world travelers? Panama! Our students will depart for Panama later this weekend to start the first leg of their journey outside the USA.

Every Friday we will be putting together our favorite photos and travel highlights from the past week. So be sure to check back again next Friday for another glimpse into our programs.

Photos of the Week 9/21

Happy Friday! The past week was a big one for our Gap Year students. After getting to know one another at Orientation in Arizona, our students left for their expedition with NOLS Southwest! Last week our students met at the Triangle Y Ranch Camp in Tucson, Arizona. Here, they did team building activities, learned communication strategies, did a photo scavenger hunt, played games and participated in workshops lead by our all star field staff. After a trip to Biosphere 2 on Sunday, our students left the Y to go to NOLS Southwest. Currently, our students are on an eight day expedition with NOLS. We can’t wait to hear about and see photos from their adventures.

Every Friday we will be putting together our favorite photos and travel highlights from the past week. So be sure to check back again next Friday for another glimpse into our programs.

We’ll have more photos from those adventures next week, but this week we’re sharing our favorite photos from our students finishing up their time traveling as a group together in Europe. Check out blue cohort behind the wheel at BMW and green cohort brushing up on their creative side in Venice.

Photos of the Week 3/23

Earlier this week our green cohort arrived in Munich, Germany while our blue cohort has settled into Venice, Italy. The past week has consisted of much excitement in regards to cooler weather, new skills, and of course amazing European food! Yesterday green cohort got into the driver’s seat with BMW where they learned defensive driving and spent most of the day behind the wheel of a beamer. Blue cohort has been focusing on the arts in Italy. Mask-making, photography, and glass blowing are just a few of the skills they will touch on while they’re there. In addition to getting the creative juices flowing, they got the chance to celebrate the birthday of our student, Savannah. Can you think of a better place to celebrate your birthday than Venice? We’re not sure if we can! Check out the photos below to get a look into the past week for yourself!

Don’t forget, every Friday we post photos of the week. Come back next week to see photos from our students time in Europe! To see more photos of our students in the field be sure to check out our InstagramTumblr, and Facebook.

Photos of the Week 3/9

Can you believe Trimester 2 has almost come to an end? Over the past couple months our students have traveled across Southeast Asia where they’ve tried their hand at skills like animation, mixology, cooking, and navigation. They also had a great time celebrating Holi, the Hindu festival of colors and spring, with the students of UWC. For those who are unfamiliar, Holi marks the end of the winter season and the beginning of abundance that will come with the upcoming spring harvest. People celebrate Holi by smearing colored powder on each other’s faces, spraying colored water, and dancing. Sound like a blast? It looks even more fun than it sounds. Check out our students photos below from their celebration. We cannot wait to see what the last bit of Trimester 2 holds for our cohorts, and we’re even more excited to see the adventures they embark on during Trimester 3.

Additionally, to hear more from our students abroad, check out our student Anna’s blog! She has recently updated her site with a post about her time in Cambodia.

Winterline Photo Contest Winners

Normally on Fridays we post our photos of the week, however both of our cohorts have finished Trimester 1 and have headed home.

These categories were left open to the interpretation of our students. Photos were judged anonymously by Winterline staff. This trimester all of our students’ photos were so amazing we chose three for each category. Check out our winners for each category below (photos are not in a specific order). Huge congrats to this trimester’s winners Meagan Kindrat, Alex Messitidis, Anna Nickerson, and Leela Ray!
