SBCC Career Counselor Roadtrip

Roadtrip Nation is a Movement of people who are defining their own Roads in life by resisting The Noise of conformity and gaining the confidence to do what inspires them. Last summer they sponsored a Counselor Indie Roadtrip, which sent four SBCC Career Center counselors and staff "on the road" to conduct interviews with people who are following their own roads. 

Watch a trailer of our interviews. . .


The interviews were focused around the topic of sustainability and giving back.
