Peripheral Programs

Trekkers’ Peripheral Programs are designed to provide students a platform for discovering their gifts and exploring their passions. All of our peripheral programs fall into one of four categories – self-empowerment, reflection, active engagement and connection to the community/natural environment. Trekkers’ Peripheral Programs complement our Core Programming by providing local educational opportunities for students in addition to their core program.
