Want to learn more about the Roadtrip Nation Movement?
Roadtrip Nation began in 2001 as an idea Mike, Nathan, Brian and Amanda, four friends fresh out of college, formed when they were not sure what to do with their lives. Initially, the scope of their plan was relatively small - climb aboard an old RV, paint it green, and then traverse the country with the purpose of interviewing people who inspired them by living lives that centred on what was meaningful to them.
From there it grew - first a book, a film and then a PBS Series. The four friends wanted to prove that anyone could do what they did - set up interviews, hit the open road, and share the experience. Then in 2008, Roadtrip Nation launched an innovative and interactive online curriculum to allow students everywhere the chance to create their own do-it-yourself Roadtrip Nation Experiences. Perhaps now it is your turn?
Students joining the Roadtrip Nation Learning Communities at the University of Saskatchewan will form a community that meets weekly throughout Term 2 (either Tuesdays, 10:00-11:20 am or Wednesdays, 4:00-5:20 pm) and, led by two peer mentors, will work together to define and build their personal roadmaps for a life that they are truly passionate about. Using Roadtrip Nation's online curriculum, you will explore what you love, connect with people that live a life that inspires you, form a team to interview those people in order to learn from their stories, and then share these experiences with each other. Outside of the weekly meetings, you will have access to an incredible collection of online videos to explore and, during mid-term break, you will go on your own road trip (around campus, across town, up north, down south - you decide!). And the cost? A small fee of $40 will cover the cost of your workbook and online account. However, any student who attends 10 or more of the 13 weekly Roadtrip Nation LC Hours will receive a reimbursement of 50% of their fee (i.e. $20) at the end of the term.
