Event description

Description

Fusion Academy Greenwich is proud to present Ben Welbourn. Join us for an evening of learning about GAP years in a casual atmosphere. We'll provide refreshments, all you need to bring is your questions.

Ben Welbourn joins Winterline as an alum of a self-designed gap year, during which he hiked the Appalachian Trail from Maine to Georgia, worked in a variety of industries, taught English in rural Peru, and led outdoor education programs in New Hampshire and Maine. He then earned his degree in international relations from the College of Wooster in Ohio.

Prior to joining Winterline, Ben led outreach efforts in New England for Rustic Pathways and managed programs for them in the Dominican Republic. He is fluent in Spanish, and before joining the field of experiential education, taught at a primarily Dominican-American school outside of Boston. When not talking with students about the benefits of global learning, Ben heads to the ocean or the mountains with his wife and dog.
