IT’S ALL ABOUT THE COHORT

We call the lifelong learners who participate in our adventures Road Scholars because they are as fun and stimulating as our learning adventures. Road Scholars are a diverse group of lifelong learners. They are solo travelers. They are couples—partners or friends. They are retirees and busy professionals. They are farmers and urbanites. Intellectuals and adventurers. And together, they form a dynamic cohort that enriches every learning experience.
