Conversations From the Open Road - Page 30

Conversations From the Open Road is a fee-for-service program: parents pay for this opportunity for their child.

Often a student will ask for a scholarship and, of course, we claim that we have one because this type of experience should not be limited to those who have the financial privilege to be able to afford it.

If a young person seeks to listen to, learn from citizens enduring a significant struggle from a different part of our country, and then manage the long hours and tedious work of editing to honor these stories, I believe he or she should be given this opportunity.

In order to keep this work going, and to continue to expand our projects and reach, we need to raise money so that this is open to ALL students, regardless of financial privilege and resources.
