TWO JOURNEYS TOWARD A SHARED FUTURE
Building on the success of our prior journeys, we recently led two journeys in August 2016: "Change" and "Unity." Together, these journeys highlighted how Millennials -- the most diverse generation in American history -- are putting ideas in motion that foster progress while simultaneously bringing communities, our country, and the world closer together.

MINI-DOC: A LOOK INSIDE MTP
A TYPICAL DAY
6:00 AM // WAKE UP!
We know its early. Rise and shine!
7:00 AM // MORNING BRIEFING
Morning briefings provide an introduction to the economic, political, and social geography of the locality where participants will spend the day exploring local examples of innovation and advancing their projects.
8:00 AM // LOCAL SHOWCASE
In each city where we stop, we establish a local hub (usually a creative design studio or startup space) where we host morning workshops led by local leaders. Here, we learn about local innovation and where the city is headed from a creative development perspective.
10:00 AM // PARTICIPANT-LED PROJECTS
Participants are allotted 5-6 hours in each MTP destination to advance a project that benefits, serves and inspires others.
MTP staff and local host committees are committed to supporting participants in these efforts.
6:00 PM // THE PIONEER'S JOURNEY
Each evening, MTP participants will take part in an hour-long set of leadership and reflection exercises to attend to their inner journey, which MTP has designed in partnership with City Year and adapted from their Idealist Journey curriculum.
7:00 PM // DINNER
Prepared with local ingredients gathered by our on-train chefs in each MTP destination, our regionally-inspired meals nurture and build fellowship among passengers, mentors, and staff.
8:00 PM // LECTURES + SEMINARS
Participants attend office hours, panel discussions, and lectures given by our distinguished on-train mentors.
