Gap N'Go Speed-Dating - May 9th from 9am - 4pm

The Gap N'Go event will take place on May 9th at the IECA conference hotel between 9am and 4pm. The event will host 1-2 IECs or college representatives in dedicated 25 minute blocks with up to 13 Gap Year Providers. The time will be lightly guided with provocative questions to help understand the nuances of each Gap Year Provider and the students they cater to. For Colleges this is an excellent opportunity to explore program partnerships with Gap Year Providers as many have already started to do.

  • Program Providers must pay a fee of $300 beyond the Gap Year Conference fees to participate in this event. The fee includes snacks and a lunch and covers expenses for the IECs to attend. In comparable events this would cost well above $1,000 - we are offering it at a level we feel providers can afford and with significant benefit to IECs and Providers. Register quickly as we only have space for 13 Providers to attend! This is available on a first-come, first-serve basis... we don't want to overcommit so are creating a wait-list for the remaining applicants.
  • The current list of programs includes:

    • NOLS
    • Ridge Mountain Academy
    • Global Routes
    • Carpe Diem Education
    • Pacific Discovery
    • Oyster Worldwide
    • American University Gap Program
    • Gap at Glenbrook
    • InnerPath Works
    • CIEE
  • Educational Consultants and college representatives are charged a fee of $100 to attend that includes lunch and tea/coffee. This is a premiere time to meet executives from the leading Gap Year organizations - it is designed to serve as a space to ask specific questions, inquire about current students, or be introduced to a new way of thinking about Gap Years. However, we can only accept the first 26 people who commit so please register quickly!
