Leadership Training Program

What does it mean to be a leader? This question is at the core of Trekkers’ Leadership Training Program for students in the 11th and 12th grade. This program provides students with the opportunity to learn, reflect and discuss what it means to be a Trekkers, community and global leader through a series of overnight leadership retreats. After participating in these leadership training opportunities, students are then eligible to put that knowledge to use by participating as a student leader on the 7th, 8th and/or 9th grade expeditions.
