About This Project
Open Roads Youth Expedition is a joyful summer adventure for high school students that combines outdoor travel with a dive into documentary storytelling through photography, film, and writing. We harness the spirit of creative activism to help students to ignite their motivation and hone their skills as inspired learners, engaged citizens, and positive contributors in their home communities and beyond.
Rebelhouse Group produced digital shorts series for Disney’s Freeform network that takes the viewer behind the scenes of the Open Roads adventure, revealing the magic and transformational journey of the participants.
In its 15 years, Open Roads has served over 200 students and is proud to say that 98% of its graduates have graduated high school and go on to college — this compared to a rate of less than 50% among their socio-economic peers.
