i2P is a non-profit organization that takes students between the ages of 17 and 21 to an exotic location where the students typically run or trek a marathon or more a day while carrying out an educational project related to the region they are in.
As they complete their expedition, students K-12 follow along in their classrooms with a curriculum that teachers can cater to their needs. The program is free for all students and classrooms to participate in and provides an experiential learning platform for teaching.
i2P’s mission is to Educate, Inspire, and Empower.
“impossible2Possible has changed my life in many ways and taught me many lessons that I would not have learned in the classroom. From participation as a Youth Ambassador in Botswana, it wasn’t just about the biodiversity and water situation I learned; I learned that running is a team sport and the meaning of sacrificing your wants for other’s needs. It was a humbling experience.
I learned of political and social situations outside of my home country and it gave me a new perspective when considering these topics. It gave me a huge appreciation for the friends and family that I have.
In continuing to work with impossible2Possible as a Youth Ambassador Alumni, in mentoring new Youth Ambassadors and helping with the educational curriculum, I have learned how much care and planning goes into these expeditions and in trying to connect students in their classrooms to the students in the wild.
i2P, its students, its athletes, its mentors continue to inspire me everyday.” - Breanna Cornell
