What Users Love About the App
“This website allows students to connect with others around the world through blogs, tweets, and other conversations. I have found that my students are more willing to share their stories when they can experience the views of others. I think it is also reassuring to hear that others share your thoughts, especially when you are struggling to define who you are or where you want to be.”
“Even as an older person. Watching this is giving me more perspective on life. All the people that they’re speaking to in their job positions or nonprofit positions, and how they think about life and how they got to where they Are. Changes how I think about how I think of my workplace. And how I can improve.”
“I’ve been watching Roadtrip Nation with my 18-21-year-old students. It is a great chance for them to see there are MANY paths to success and many ways to measure success.”
“Young people being encouraged to find their voice, by interacting with those who had to. Look, listen, learn, be inspired. Love ‘being on the bus’ as it travels through the streets of cities I will never get to. Just a wonderful experience.”
“This program was amazing and so inspiring. The young people in this program are very strong and impressive. The program highlights some of the strategies that successful people from disadvantaged backgrounds have used to get where they are.”
