The Road Less Traveled: Student Travel Information Session & Slideshow
Please come experience an hour full of photos, stories and possibility! We look forward to inspiring you, your family, and friends, showing you what a summer spent with The Road Less Traveled can mean! The world is too amazing a place not to be explored and The Road Less Traveled can take you there.
The Road Less Traveled is a teen summer community service, language and adventure travel program that offers an opportunity for young people to engage in a service of presence and active listening in the world. We encourage involvement and cultivate leadership, excellence, openness and sensitivity, initiative, communal participation, social activism and environmentalism.
You may build a school or medical outpost in Costa Rica, Panama, Ecuador, Peru, Tanzania or Namibia, work on environmental projects, restore coral reef in the Florida Keys, save monk seals in Hawaii, work with wolves in Colorado or volunteer in aiding disaster relief victims. We travel to Norway, crossing the entire country kayaking, rafting, biking and hiking and offer formal language coursework in Costa Rica, Ecuador or Spain. We travel to the Himalayas, kayak between the skyscrapers of Chicago, restore rivers and work with local farmers in Michigan, and provide aid to those effected by Hurricane Katrina and the Gulf oil spill. We offer surfing, rock climbing, snorkeling, windsurfing, kayaking, whitewater rafting, SCUBA PADI lessons and certifications, backpacking, ice and snow mountaineering. There are also specialized programs in leadership, Wilderness First Responder Certification, Family and Spring Break programs and Global Perspectives travel for young people grades 6 - 8. You will contribute, learn and return home with a life changing travel experience to remember.
