If You’re Not Watching Rustic’s Instagram Stories, You’re Missing Out

If you’ve ever wondered what actually happens on a Rustic Pathways program, we’ve got you covered. Tune into our Instagram Stories where just about every day you can get get a glimpse into the various aspects of a Rustic summer.

Here’s how it works: Go to our Instagram page and click our profile picture in the upper left corner to load that day’s story (don’t forget to turn up the volume on your phone). Insta Stories are a great way to learn more about Rustic and what takes place every summer from the perspectives of our students and staff in a minute or two.

Depending on the day of the week, you might catch an episode of Let’s Try Stuff, a series featuring two Fiji staff members who knock an item off their bucket lists each week. You might see me during Fast Forward Friday where I preview new program experiences we’re offering in 2018.

You could get a glimpse of what it’s like on Rustic’s travel days, when students head to their destination countries each Tuesday during the summer. Or you could go behind the scenes with the Rustic Crew, our global staff members who work from about 20 countries all over the world.

Check out a this week’s Travel Tuesday story featuring Regional Development Manager Dustin Aschenbeck, who flew to Australia with a group of students. Some provided a #trustytraveltip. 

This particular story and a few others were also posted to Facebook because Insta Stories disappear after 24 hours. So don’t miss out by not checking Instagram every day!
