Applicants must have a “B” average in math and science classes and a strong recommendation from their current math or science teachers.

We wanted to let you know about an exciting, free opportunity for high school students in Texas: Texas OnCourse—a new initiative formed to empower students to chart a clear path to college and career success—has teamed up with career exploration organization Roadtrip Nation to offer the Texas Youth Roadtrip.
Four teams made up of three high school students each will take a mini-adventure through their region of Texas to interview post-secondary students and professionals who are building lives and livelihoods around the things they love. Under the eye of an adult chaperone, these young adult Texans will travel on Roadtrip Nation’s green RV to explore an array of post-secondary paths, from trade schools to four-year universities, and beyond. They’ll also conduct in-depth interviews with working professionals who hold jobs in fields that align with the students’ current interests, chosen endorsements, or career aspirations.
Filmed for the Roadtrip Nation public television series, this experience will introduce selected participants-—and TV audiences—to the unique set of opportunities available to today’s average American teenager, while also showcasing the exciting innovations taking place specifically within the state of Texas.
Please share this information with any Texas high school students who could use some insight or inspiration for their future—or who might just be in need of a good adventure!
Applicants can apply at the following link by July 3rd, 2017: rtn.is/texas
