Each year, Trekkers provides educational, experiential, and cross-cultural opportunities to up to 210 young people from six communities in a rural part of midcoast Maine. With an emphasis on relationship building and an appreciation of the earth as “educator,” our goal is to be a part of students’ lives from grade to grade and year to year. Your support helps make that happen.
General giving supports overall programming and operations and provides Trekkers with the resources necessary to continue providing quality services to our youth.

A monthly donation of $114, or an annual gift of $1,368, covers the cost of providing Trekkers’ experiential learning program to one student for the entire year. With your support, Trekkers will provide local youth with memorable and life-changing educational experiences that build valuable life skills, foster teamwork and hone leadership abilities.
In addition to modest student fees, Trekkers relies primarily on individuals, organizations, corporations, and foundations to fund our programs and operations. We strive to manage our expenses in a cost-effective manner to keep our student fees as low as possible. In-kind donations—non-monetary contributions of goods or services—also help us to minimize costs. For Trekkers’ wish list please contact the office.
