Wandering Educators Youth Travel Blogging Mentorship Program

I’m sure you’ve heard the expression, ‘If something sounds too good to be true, it probably is.’ My dad always warned me about things that seemed to good to be true, but I must say I checked this one out and if you have a teen with an interest in travel, writing, blogging–RUN don’t walk!! to take advantage of this fantastic opportunity at Wandering Educators.

As Dr. Jessie Voigts explains:

“Kids today face challenges that their parents and grandparents could never imagine.  There are no clear career paths for them, because the way we work and live is constantly changing and evolving.  This has also created opportunities, and a lifestyle, that didn’t exist a decade ago.  Now, more than ever, kids can truly live their dreams.  They can create the life they want.  We want to help kids see these opportunities – and provide them with the skills, knowledge, and support to fully take advantage of them.”
