Podcast #41- Transforming Education

Podcast 41 of Xtraordinary Living is out. This is a must-listen episode if you value education and/or have teenage kids. In this podcast I interview Sam Bull founder of an education firm devoted to inner and outer exploration and growth called LEAPNOW. They offer the most unique year of college on Earth! Through his dream of transforming education, Sam Bull and his team are giving hundreds of young people the chance to learn who they want to be as adults.

In our 41st episode, you'll hear:
-- What it was like growing up in three different countries and going to school with children of 40 different nationalities.
-- How did this cross-cultural exposure affect Sam's beliefs about education and help him develop the concept of alternative learning environments for young people.
-- Why real experiences engage and accelerate a young person's transition to adulthood.
-- How the adventurous LEAPYEAR program works -- you will be astonished, and wish YOU could go back to the future and do an internship at the Great Barrier Reef or in Kenya.
-- Why LEAPYEAR is totally devoid of media, drug and alcohol.
-- What important suggestion Sam has for parents of today's tech-stressed children.
-- and much more.
