I am planning a trip this summer through a program called Rustic Pathways! It’s a program based on global teen adventure and travel through community service. When I found out about this through someone who came to my school, I was ecstatic thinking about the possibility of being able to travel to a country of my choice, do what I can to help, and expand my mind and knowledge with whatever the trip may bring to me. As of right now, I have not chosen which program I want to do because there is so many amazing options! The goal that I have chosen is an estimate of around what I’m hoping to need. I work two jobs which I plan to use that money to also save up, and will be doing other types of fundraisers as well. I am also in the process of applying for a scholarship through Rustic Pathways, but have not found out if I have received it yet, and won’t until the beginning of April. Because this program is not through my school, I have to find my own unique ways of fundraising without the help of a group leader. This opportunity is very important to me, and anything anyone can donate would mean more than you know!
