Think back to your most memorable travel experience. Who did you travel with? What sites did you visit?

Regardless of destination or purpose, travel changes us. It forces us to step out of our comfort zone, experience diverse cultures, and most importantly learn about ourselves. We feel that every student should have this opportunity, regardless of race or income. 

Trip of a Lifetime is a student-run 501(c)3 non-profit organization that uses summer travel experiences to unlock the true potential in underprivileged students, enabling them to become the leaders of tomorrow. Since its inception, the organization has raised over $750,000 and has sent 79 students on trips.

The organization has been featured in the Poughkeepsie Journal and Wall Street Journal. It has also been named a recommended summer opportunity by the New York City Department of Education.

We invite you to explore our website, learn more about our summer travel scholarships, and discover how #travelchangesyou.
