One of our favorite Ted Talks - Learn to Travel by Robin Esrock
As Thanksgiving is quickly approaching, I want to take a minute and give thanks to all of our donors, volunteers, trip alumni, and partners. Without each of their generosity and kindness, the organization would not be where it is today. We could have never asked for a better support system.
Specifically, I want to recognize a few people:
Norman Rein, Karen Rein, and Howard Fox - Since day one, the three of them have gone above and beyond the call of duty, making sure all of our selected students have an amazing experience on their trips. We couldn’t have asked for better partners in Rein Teen Tours and American Trails West.
Dustin Alin, Philip Gallagher, Mitch Mosk, Steven Kline, Claire Hodgdon, Josh Kogan, and Saket Mehta - These seven co-founders of mine amaze me everyday with their enthusiasm, creativity, and passion. Many of Trip of a Lifetime’s strategic initiatives, from our website to the pre-trip kickoff celebrations have been conceived and developed by them.
All 31 of our Trip Alumni - If anyone can change the world in the next century, it will be these students. They are open, honest, and display a contagious passion for social change. Hearing their stories gives me even more motivation to continue the great work we are doing.
From everyone at Trip of a Lifetime, have a happy and healthy Thanksgiving (and happy Hanukkah to those celebrating as well).

In case you haven’t heard, Trip of a Lifetime founder Stan Rosenberg was featured today in the New York Post. Read the article here!
Congratulations to Stan Rosenberg, the founder of Trip of a Lifetime, for being featured as one of 22 people to watch in Westchester for 2012!
Trip of a Lifetime is proud to announce a partnership with Safe Skies, the provider of the industry’s largest selection of TSA Accepted and Recognized luggage locks. Both organizations are united by the common themes of travel and self-discovery, making our partnership an ideal match. The founder of Safe Skies, David Tropp, went to NYU Stern like Stan. David was immediately touched by Stan’s story when he read about the organization in the Wall Street Journal and wanted to find a way to help.
“Safety is essential in any trip, and Safe Skies is proud to become an official sponsor of Trip of a Lifetime,” stated David Tropp, founder of Safe Skies. “We fully support the organization and we look forward to helping a teenager achieve the opportunity of a lifetime.”
“Trip of a Lifetime was created to offer an opportunity for teenagers with a passion for travel and discovery, but are not privileged enough to do so,” said Stan Rosenberg, founder of Trip of a Lifetime. “We welcome and appreciate the support of Safe Skies and look forward to providing more opportunities in the future.”
Under our partnership, Safe Skies, whose luggage locks display the proprietary torch symbol that allows baggage screeners to easily identify, open, inspect and re-lock it, will provide a selection of locks to each award winner, ensuring the safety of their belongings.
Founded in 2005, Safe Skies is the only luggage lock company accepted and recognized by both the United States Transportation Security Administration (TSA) and Her Majesty’s Revenue and Customs of the United Kingdom. Distinctively highlighted by the torch logo, Safe Skies luggage locks allow luggage screeners to safely inspect your luggage without clipping the lock. Safe Skies products, including TSA accepted padlocks, combination locks, cable locks and luggage straps are available worldwide, including Japan, Germany, Argentina, United Kingdom, Ireland, Indonesia, Singapore, Australia, Panama and the United States.
