This is the HUB.

The leap into the world before legal recognition as an adult is a scary one, and it truly took a village to get me there as a teen. I want to pass on this information with this hub.


The goal is to create a central place for teens and adolescences to gather and share in honor of the lonely teens who crave friendship on the road. 

Here you will find written stories, videos, photo essays and the practical advice you've been scouring the internet for, made by the people who actually embarked on the adventures themselves. And if we don't have an answer for your question yet, pop it in the forum.

We shine together.

Storytelling has run in Katie's blood since birth, when she would force all people present to take a seat while she put on puppet shows with as many encores as she wanted, thank you very much. She is also an avid traveler and has been since she was 14. Katie is the founder of Travel Young Hub. This project is her senior capstone showcase for Colorado State University.


Katie focused on storytelling and community engagement in her time at CSU and this hub is the crown that is bringing it all together. She hopes the website serves as a jumping off point for the many brave youngins who are following their dreams and just need a few resources to get where they want to be.
