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.
In March 2022, fueled by the South Carolina Department of Commerce, South Carolina Council on Competitiveness, and Strada Education Network, we’re sending three people from South Carolina on a life-changing road trip across their state to take a closer look at some of its emerging job sectors, as well as how some of its more traditionally known industries are evolving and shaping the future.
If you’re hoping to explore different pathways and achieve your unique career goals in South Carolina, we’re looking for you! You’ll get to sit down with people working in all kinds of industries connected to your interests—whether that’s in aerospace, logistics, STEM, agribusiness, or something else entirely—to get advice and insights about how you can find where you fit in the state you call home.
If you’re curious about what your future career will look like, 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 18 or older and either current high school students, recent high school graduates, or pursuing postsecondary education or training.
Applicants must be available for three weeks of consecutive travel in 2022. This trip is currently scheduled for March, 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.
