For the past six years Trip of a Lifetime has endeavored to send deserving middle and high school students from the New York City area on summer trips to the western United States. Last year applications from over 130 students were received, of which 16 were accepted. This year Trip of a Lifetime hopes to send 20 to 25 students on these exceptional travel experiences. The trips are run by the organization’s partners at Rein Teen Tours, a preeminent student travel company that has sent over 50,000 students on trips to date .

Trip of a Lifetime works to provide life-changing opportunities that students could not otherwise access. Perhaps this is best explained by Harleigh, a trip alumna from 2013. “It was amazing to see the natural beauty of Zion, Bryce, Sedona and the Grand Canyon, as well as the man-made beauty in the enchanting lights and architecture of Las Vegas, San Francisco, and Los Angeles. I was also shown the value of volunteering, as I participated at different environment related volunteer locations, and the beauty in people as I got to know people more and more on the trip.”

Applications for Summer 2016 are available at Interested students should download and complete the application, then email it to applications(at)projecttoal(dot)org before the March 1st deadline.
