Hi! We’re Roadtrip Nation, and for 20 years, we’ve been sending people on road trips to expand their ideas of what their careers—and lives—could look like. We want to help people find pathways to fulfilling work, and we’ve created a public television show, written bestselling books, and developed classroom curricula to show it’s possible.
This November, powered by NYSERDA (New York State Energy Research and Development Authority), we’re sending three young people to explore career opportunities in the New York State clean energy sector...for free! If you’re eager to take on the crisis facing our climate with your career, we’re looking for you! We want to give you a hands-on look at how people like you are using their talents and interests to find fulfilling and meaningful careers in this field right in your home state.
Along the way, you’ll meet people who’ve taken all sorts of pathways to making clean energy a reality for New York. You’ll get to meet people working to bring the entire state’s buildings, transportation, and energy infrastructure up to the clean, green, and highly efficient standards we need to build a bright future for everyone!
If you’re ready to find your place in the clean energy world of New York State, please take a few minutes to fill out the application below.
- All travel expenses, plus a daily stipend for personal expenses, are paid for by Roadtrip Nation.
- Applicants must be available for three weeks of consecutive travel in 2022. This trip is currently scheduled for November 2022, but the timing may shift as we continue to monitor the situation with COVID-19. We'll work with applicants and communicate about timing as we learn more.
- We want to share your journey with others, so the road trip will be filmed. The resulting documentary may be shown on public television, as well as other relevant video platforms.
Individuals who are chosen will help plan the trip around their specific interests, areas of study, and career aspirations, so you’ll be working with Roadtrip Nation to research and book interviews with the career role models you’d like to speak with.
