Rita Golden Gelman’s Trip to all 50 States to Promote Gap Years for High School Graduates

Leave a comment

One of our most dedicated Servas members, Rita Golden Gelman, is planning a cross-country trip in the near future along with like-minded nomads. She and her friends are “planning a 50-state tour of the U.S. to speak to schools, have meetings with leaders, and get as much publicity as possible….online, in print,  and on TV and radio….about the value of a Gap Year and international travel in general.”  Rita says one of their “strategies is to get local communities to raise money for Gap Year scholarships in their schools.”

As a long time member of Servas, Rita will be informally spreading the word about Servas on the tour as well. We will keep you updated about their journey on our blog in the future.

In the meantime if you are interested in learning more about Gap Years for you or your loved ones the American Gap Association is a great place to start.

Also, check out Rita’s website to get more information about her life as a nomad, her journeys with Servas, and her books.

Happy Travels!
