High school is a time to explore, create, take chances, and make mistakes.
But high schoolers are also expected to make crazy-big choices about their futures—especially in Texas, where students are expected to choose a specialized area of study...essentially taking the first step towards choosing a career! That’s why this fall, we’re sending four teams of high school students from Texas on a series of road trip adventures through their local region of the state. Exploring everywhere from El Paso to the Gulf Coast—and everything in between—each team will do a deep dive into the educational and occupational opportunities arising on their very own stomping grounds. Follow along with these four teams as they let go of the familiar, and uncover the kind of adventures only Texas can provide.

For 15 years, we’ve made it our mission to talk with professionals of every kind and ask the questions that no one is asking—honest questions about their struggles, successes, and how they figured out the age-old dilemma, “What should I do with my life?”
From video game designers to lawyers, sports journalists to STEM professionals, and everything in between, we’ve sought out untold stories and shared them. These stories form the basis of our career exploration products—including an educational curriculum, personalized online tools, video content, bestselling books, and live events.
