Get Onboard!

I am excited to be applying to join the Millennial Trains Project: A 10 day journey across the US with 40 the most innovative and impassioned social and business leaders under the age of 34. 

 

If I am able to raise the $5,000 needed to support my participation, this journey will be an excellent opportunity to refine and promote the ideas for my upcoming book, Healing our Body Politic:  Dialogue and Action to Resolve Problems . This book leverages my experiences working with groups in Florida, California, and Southern Africa to provide some new ideas on helping people listen to each other and create solutions.

A TYPICAL DAY ON THE TRAIN

500 AM // WAKE UP! 

We know its early. Rise and shine!

----------------

600 AM // MORNING BRIEFING 

Morning briefings provide an introduction to the economic, political, and social geography of the locality where participants will spend the day exploring local examples of innovation and advancing their projects.

 -----------------------------------------------------------------------------------

700 AM // #ONTRACK SHOWCASE 

MTP will convene a three-hour #ontrack showcase that exhibits innovative and entrepreneurial projects in each community. During this time, passengers have the opportunity to engage with local Millennials, residents and community leaders. 

#ontrack events will include remarks from community leaders on the state of their city. 

 -----------------------------------------------------------------------------------

1000 AM // PARTICIPANT-LED PROJECT 

Participants are allotted 5-6 hours in each MTP destination to advance a project that benefits, serves and inspires others. 

MTP staff and local host committees are committed to supporting participants in these efforts. 

 -----------------------------------------------------------------------------------

400 PM // BUFFER

To accommodate train delays, allow for downtime in each community, and, in certain instances, prepare for an #ontrack evening event, two hours of buffer time has been added to our daily schedule. 

----------------

600 PM // THE PIONEER'S JOURNEY

Each evening, MTP participants will take part in an hour-long set of leadership and reflection exercises to attend to their inner journey, which MTP has designed in partnership with City Year and adapted from their Idealist Journey curriculum.

700 PM // LECTURES + SEMINARS

Following their leadership training and reflection, participants will have the option to attend office hours, panel discussions, and lectures given by on-train mentors.
