Year after year many college students graduate with no idea of what’s next. Chicago native Amber Rae is here to change the lives of 24 of those students. She’s starting her own unconventional school, The Bold Academy, for students who want to change the world, but aren’t sure how to get started. The fearless trailblazer doesn’t feel like higher education is enough, and wants to bring 24 college students and recent grads to Boulder, Colorado for a 4-week “transformative life experience”. The goal of the program is to provide students with real-world experience and a clear strategy on how to follow their dreams and ultimately land their dream job.

She describes the experience as a very fulfilling emotional roller coaster, “There will be moments of fear, deep connections, triumphs, and breakthroughs. We see lifelong bonds being formed in days, and strengthened over weeks. We envision this experience being the catalyst for the rest of their lives.”

For more information on The Bold Academy, visit Amber Rae’s Tumblr

This sounds like an awesome way to prepare for the future. What do you think?
