Winter Self-Design Initiatives

Should you decide to create a full gap year and do both the Simply Living Semester and Watershed Semester, you will have a free time period between programs from early November through late January.

IMG_0387This is a time that you can go home and be with your family or get a job or basically do whatever you want. We will challenge you, however, to do something meaningful with this time, and we will support you in figure that you.  Options include arranging independent apprenticeships, travel, work or adventures either near your home, in Paonia or elsewhere. Previous gap year students have arranged activities such as:

catering with a macrobiotic chef
Walking the Camino de Santiago in Spain
working with horses
Nannying for a band on the road
touring dance events
Visiting deaf communities in Japan
language school in Guadalajara
