Me in 10 seconds:
I’m an author, educator, and adventurer who helps young people become more self-directed.
I design and lead life-changing trips and workshops for teenagers through my company Unschool Adventures.
I’m the author of three books, I speak for alternative schools and homeschooling conferences, and my work has appeared on The Huffington Post, The New York Times, USA Today, BBC Travel, Psychology Today, and Fox Business.
My recent projects:
- The Way of Adventure: a free online course for challenge-hungry young people
- Off-Trail Learning: a resource site and podcast about self-directed learning
- How to Live Nowhere: an online book about nomadic living for twenty- and thirty-somethings
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.
