Big Adventures for Self-Directed Teenagers

Here at Unschool Adventures we create big adventures for self-directed teenagers.

Since our first group trip to Argentina in 2008, our mission has remained the same: to help young people build new friendships, unforgettable memories, and the confidence to lead an unconventional life.

No matter whether you’re an unschooler, homeschooler, alternative school student, or just someone passionate about travel—you’re welcome at Unschool Adventures.

Past Participants Say…

“This experience far exceeded my expectations. Going into it, I didn’t know what to expect. Leaving, I am torn between the thought of returning home to my family and the sadness of leaving this incredible journey and the people I grew to know as friends.”

– Chase (Berlin 2023)

“Unschool Adventures is perfect for anybody craving something outside of the conventional life path. It provides a wonderful environment to learn, grow, and thrive. I am so thankful for the amazing community of miscreant unschoolers I met.”

– Emma G. (Patagonia Retreat 2023)

“My trip to Spain was one of the best experiences of my life. I’ve never had learned so much and had so much fun all at once. I met such genuine, kind-hearted, and unique people… the types of people that I never thought were possible.”

– Elinor (Spain 2018)

“Unschool Adventures has provided me with truly life-changing trips that have made me a more confident, motivated, and inspired young adult. I am in awe of the world. I have made life-long friends, and I have enough travel experience under my belt that I could travel anywhere by myself.”

– Sierra (Argentina Semester 2017)

“Because of Unschool Adventures I’ve found a new love for so many things: dancing, hiking, being in new places and experiencing new things. It’s hard to put into words how much my world has been expanded.”

– Vick (Southeast Asia 2017)

“Being around such a supportive environment encouraged me to take my life into my own hands. I valued learning about active listening and consent which is something that I had never really experienced before.”

– Natanielle (Real World Retreat 2016)

Our 2023 contributions went toward Global Health and Development.
