Roadtrip Nation

Ready To Rise

Special | 55m 36s

Follow three “opportunity youth”—young people who are part of the 5.6 million youth in America who are unemployed, not in school, and struggling with challenges as extreme as homelessness. On a mission to unlock their potential, they travel the country and interview people like poets, educators, and "Pursuit of Happyness" author Chris Gardner—all of whom have harnessed adversity for success.
