Hi! We’re Roadtrip Nation, and for 20 years, we’ve been sending people on road trips in our green RV 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 fall, fueled by the Corporation for Public Broadcasting and Strada Education Network, we’re sending three people across the country in our green RV for three to four weeks...for free! If you’re hoping to explore careers that can change the world—from helping live better lives through the government and nonprofit sectors work to creating solutions to social problems as an entrepreneur or educator—we’re looking for you! We want to give you a hands-on experience of how people across the nation are using their voices, talents, and skill sets to shape a better future for all of us. You’ll get to travel the country and sit down with activists, community organizers, politicians, and more to find how you can best help to build a better world.
If you’re curious about how your future career could change the world for the better and on the lookout for an adventure, 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 to four weeks of consecutive travel in 2021. This trip is currently scheduled for October 2021, 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.
