Trip of a lifetime

Empowering students through summer travel experiences

Welcome To #TravelChanges You


It’s been our collective experience at Trip of a Lifetime that people are profoundly moved by travel experiences. This philosophy is the bedrock of our organization. It seems universal that people are most animated when describing their travels, and how they were changed by the funny, deep and unexpected things they encountered. Once it happens to someone it’s a lifelong adventure, but tales of our travels when young often resonate the most.

There is immense social value in these stories, and that’s a conversation worth hosting. To accomplish this, Trip of a Lifetime is introducing our new social media campaign, #travelchangesyou. We’re inviting alumni, staff, supporters and kindred spirits to share their favorite youth travel stories with us. In about 250 words, tell us about your own most cherished travel experience and how it affected you. If you’d like to send us a photo we’ll put it with your prose. These adventures will appear on the Trip of a Lifetime website, and we’ll post them to our social media streams too.

Help Trip of a Lifetime show the world that travel changes you. Please send your 250-word story (and photo if you have one) totravelchangesyou@projecttoal.org. Visit us at www.projecttoal.org to find information about our 2014 applicants and their upcoming travels. You can also like us at www.facebook.com/projecttoal, read our blog at Tumblr, and check us out on Twitter. Our students, staff and friends look forward to hearing your personal favorite travel story.
