Welcome Back to School Everyone!

Rave Reviews for the Road Trip Nation Advisory Course at New Dawn Charter High School

Roadtrip Nation has been creating innovative self-discovery resources since 2008. Combining experiential learning activities with meaningful introspection, their programs empower students to connect their studies to their interests and stay engaged with their futures. Their national education team recently visited New Dawn to see how our Road Trip Nation Advisory course (taught by New Dawn Social Worker Chelsea Rissner) has been doing. See what great things they had to say about the course!
