Begins January 4, 2013


Three young Americans fly to New Zealand and embark on a four-week roadtrip on the other side of the world. 

The Roadtrip Nation Experience is created to help students define their own Roads in Life by connecting what they study to their individual aspirations.

In 12 online lessons and a Roadtrip Project, students go through a process of introspection and self-reflection by exploring Roadtrip Nation’s vast Interview Archive of stories with hundreds of leaders who live lives around their interests and passions.

In the final Roadtrip Project, students take what they learn and create their own local Roadtrips to interview leaders in their communities about how they got to where they are today. Students capture their experiences in a variety of ways using photos, blogs, and video, which are showcased in Roadtrip Nation’s online Student Community.

The goal of this empowering experience is for students to have a stronger connection to themselves, to their educations, and to their futures.
