Fall 2020 Gap Program Updates

We at Winterline Global Education remain committed to providing opportunities for young adults to learn real-world skills that will help them be successful in college, life, and career. We believe these skills, and the confidence and resilience they drive, are now more important than ever.

During these times, we promise you:


We know many families are still making decisions about Fall 2020 as you wait to hear from your colleges or universities. In order to better support your current needs, we have extended our application deadline to September 1st.

Based on the current travel restrictions and our safety benchmarks, we have made the following adjustments to our Fall 2020 Global Skills Program.

  • The program start date is extended to November 4th.
  • The program will retain the same number of travel weeks by removing winter break.
  • International programming is delayed until 2021.
  • The program will conclude in Europe to allow students to travel after the program end.


You can find more details of our updated itinerary here.


The last thing we want to do is add to the uncertainty of this time. We will communicate updates regularly and will continue to be transparent with families regarding any shifts in the itineraries, start dates, country locations, etc. 

Should additional program adjustments need to be made based on pandemic-related restrictions, we promise full transparency.

A Risk-Free Process

Students can get started on their applications with the assurance that we have their safety in mind. They can reserve their spot in our Global Skills Program, Skillmester programs, and Summer 2021 program now.

Thank you for your trust in us. We look forward to continuing to work with young adults to ensure that they have the opportunity for a transformative experience to uncover their passions and prepare for life.

Now is the time to invest in themselves to learn resume-building skills and stay on track with college credit.
