My Travel Story

by: Maxwell Trice Start Date: Mar 27, 2018 - End Date: Sep 26, 2018
Hello All!!

I am Maxwell Trice, from Tampa Florida. I am the oldest of four kids, and in my second year of college. For the last 5 years, I have been working with many different youth groups down the east coast. We work to educate the youth about different career options, help them have a voice when dealing with difficult situations, and be a “big brother”. This term we coined just means someone they know always has their back and is there to help them. 

After 5 years, I have now been afforded the chance to do this internationally!! I have the opportunity to go to London and across Europe for 2 months engaging in the youth, and learning how different cultures find ways to assist their youth. The tools I will learn, will help me be a better mentor to the youth of Tampa. 

My my proudest moment was when one of the kids I mentored was lacking confidence because his family and peers were telling him he wasn’t bright enough to get into college. I sat down with him and we worked on college applications. I am very proud to say he is now attending UCF. I love to help the youth be the best they can possibly be. I don’t want to limit myself to one area of the globe, which is why this trip is so important to me. Anything that you could give to help me assist youth internationally will be so greatly appreciated. Even if you don’t give, I ask that you go and find at least one child to assist. The impact we have on their lives can not be put into words.
