"Roadtrip Nation: Skill Powered" hits the road with three hardworking and ambitious young people looking for promising career paths that don't necessarily include college. The Roadtrippers discover that the path to success doesn't have to start with a four-year degree — and that a fulfilling life can be built in many ways.
This event is made possible by the UtahFutures American Graduate project, part of the Corporation for Public Broadcasting’s American Graduate: Getting to Work initiative.
Welcome to OVEE
Follow along as three young people explore what’s happening in the exciting world of skilled trades and learn about promising jobs where a four-year degree isn’t necessary. In the culinary arts and sound engineering, woodworking and welding, people are finding purpose and fulfillment. Come along for the ride.
