I’m an author, adventurer, and entrepreneur who helps young people become better self-directed learners and take charge of their educations, careers, and lives.
I’ve published three books and many articles, led teenagers across South America, Australia, New Zealand, and Nepal (through my company Unschool Adventures), and appeared on The Huffington Post, The New York Times, USA Today, BBC Travel, and Fox Business.
My current work and projects include:
- running a 6-week New Zealand trip for 11 teens in Feb-Mar 2016
- brushing up on my Spanish in Guatemala (Jan ’16) and tango in Argentina (Apr-May ’16)
- planning more Unschool Adventures programs for late 2016 & onwards
- fleshing out an exciting new book idea
- …and more
I travel often, but I always seem to circle back to the mountains of the western United States. I love trail running, ultralight backpacking, summer camps, and living close to the wilderness.
Blake Boles is open-minded, interested in everything, courageous, and passionately committed to individual development. I would expect good things to happen for young people who had the good fortune to hang out with Blake for a while.
