Redefine Your Life Without Leaving the Country
If you are looking for an opportunity to step out of your comfort zone, but don’t feel ready to travel to the other side of the world, our US Odyssey program still provides a unique opportunity to see yourself and your life from a fresh perspective. Whether serving food to the homeless in Phoenix or volunteering alongside ex-convicts, recovering addicts, or kids aging out of the foster system in Los Angeles, you will see that struggle is universal and that each of our stories are much bigger than the challenges we have faced.
An experience with cancer can make your world feel small and like you have lost the capacity to contribute. A Fresh Chapter’s Odyssey programs give you the opportunity to step beyond your story of cancer and connect with inspiring volunteer projects that will remind you of your strength and resilience. After a US Odyssey program, you will come home with a tribe of new friends and the resources and support to dream new dreams for your life.
Your time on the US Odyssey is only a part of the broader A Fresh Chapter Odyssey framework, which includes significant pre- and post-trip programming designed to help you explore and address the emotional scars of cancer and envision how you want to move forward to a life filled with renewed meaning, connection, and adventure. Through personalized support from our team – including on-the-ground support from our trained facilitators – and extensive online resources, our framework is designed to offer you a road map and an invitation to explore your life beyond cancer.
