Looking for a chance to meet the Winterline team and learn more about our program? Catch us at a gap year fair near you this winter!

With a new year comes new adventures – not just for you, but for us, too! From January to March, we’re on the road for the USA Gap Year Fairs. From coast to coast, we’ll be visiting different fairs to meet students, parents, and counselors. Will you be one of them? We sure hope so! There’s no better way to find out about our program than talking with us face-to-face, and with a fair almost every day, there’s plenty of opportunities to drop by and get to know the people behind Winterline. Check out the fair schedule to find an event near you, and be sure to follow us on Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter to keep up with us as we attend!

What to Know

  • This is the 12th year that the USA Gap Year Fairs organization is holding this circuit
  • Students, parents, and educational professionals are all welcome to attend
  • New York to California, Illinois to Texas, and more – there are more than 40 fairs and we’ll be at all of them alongside other gap year programs
  • At each fair, there are speaker presentations and Q&A’s about gap years (this year, two of our own will be panelists – catch them in Brookline, MA and Boulder, CO)
  • You can meet both alumni and professionals to get a holistic view of the gap year experience
