At what point do the students start to interact with their sponsor?


Frederick Bianchi: Prior to going to Bar Harbor, the students are in contact with the people that they're going to be working with—in Bar Harbor it's primarily the Acadia National Park and rangers and specialists in various areas. There's a lot of back and forth in written communication and via skype phone calls, so by the time the students arrive, they feel that they already know the sponsor. In most cases, that correspondence is really inspiring and uplifting and the students feel well prepared.
