"Nothing is too heavy for those that have wings"
STEP 3 TRAVEL
Students travel with our NetWings team for a week for their international experience. The time is evenly split between NetWings and our partner Conference Programming. A majority of the time spent with NetWings is devoted to Case Study Work, Service Learning, and engaging in cultural activities with our student mentors upon meeting in person. The Conference time is spent in workshops, interactive panels, cultural events, and social get togethers with student conference participants from throughout the world.
STEP 4 ACT
Upon returning from their international travels, students work with our teams to write, edit, create data visualization exhibits for, and publish their case study. This case study takes into consideration students' pre-work, interaction with mentors, and NetWings and Conference Programming; allowing students to holistically contextualize their learnings from the trip. These cases are later used for students to teach in their local communities and to spur awareness about the topics their cases cover.
We promote effective multilingualism; the value of not only speaking various languages but perfecting language proficiency in professional and academic settings. Students
practice how to convey ideas in a clear, inclusive, and global way while participating in international conferences. More importantly, students become exposed to the importance of learning more than one language and seeing how one language can be used within various countries around the world.
CONNECTING THE DOTS
Our students learn to engage in significant conversation while building foundations for friendship and collaboration. We help students create a launchpad of international connections that encourage learning and exploration with a goal to begin connecting people with ideas, ideas with people, and beyond. NetWings students learn to not only connect the dots within the NetWings curriculum but also across a variety of spectums; a large factor in strengthening their confidence as students, professionals, and individuals

Founder & President
"Getting involved in domestic and global conferences changed the frame of mind of my purpose, my goals, and introduced me to international friendships beyond imaginable. The moment I saw my life change in this way, I knew I had to find a way to bring these opportunities to others and so I founded NetWings to help do this." Learn more here.
"We now live in a society where ideas can cross oceans and we should be encouraging our students to go forth and learn about the world and take on global challenges. This is why I decided to lead NetWings. I want to facilitate this exchange to create a more aware and well rounded student and individual." Learn more here.
