Transforming Young Lives Through Travel with FLYTE

Dramatic life-changing travel should not be reserved for the fortunate few.

every kid deserves the opportunity to explore

When I was a kid, I was lucky enough to have adults in my life who understood the value of travel.

They got me out into the world and positively changed the trajectory of my life.

Travel instilled in me levels of humility, gratitude, patience, and empathy that may not have developed otherwise.

I’ve always imagined that someday I would do something to help give under served kids the opportunity to explore the world the way I did.

The good news for all of us is that there is existing organization doing exactly what I’d always envisioned.

Allow me to introduce you to FLYTE.

empowering students through travel

FLYTE is a non-profit organization that empowers students through transformative travel experiences.

FLYTE was founded in 2015 by travel author and blogger, Matthew Kepnes, better known as Nomadic Matt.

My partnership with FLYTE began in March of 2018 when I launched the Dramatic Travels (now Dramatic Dad) podcast.

Now, the FLYTE team and I are working on a plan to expand our partnership and make an even greater impact in 2019 and beyond.
