“JOURNEY” is a theme dear to the Trekkers mission. An integral aspect of Trekkers is the journey that students take with us over six years, with our caring mentors helping them to grow into resilient, thriving, responsible adults that have acquired the skills they need to identify and realize their aspirations.
Twenty-six Artists are donating artwork to our event and sharing how the theme of “journey” inspired their submissions.
Our past two art auctions were very successful and we are so grateful for the generosity of all artists that have participated. We are proud to tell you that the donated artwork from our previous fundraiser resulted in over $28,000 in revenue, which provides expeditionary learning opportunities for 15 students for one year.
All the money raised at this Silent Art Auction will support our continuing efforts and mission as a long-term program that connects young people with caring mentors and leverages out-of-classroom learning to help students grow into resilient, thriving, responsible people. With guided support from adult mentors and deeply committed volunteers, Trekkers students work hard, have fun, form life-long relationships, expand their world-views, take supported risks, build resiliency, and acquire the skills they need to identify and realize their aspirations.
