A Leader in Youth Development
For 25 years, Trekkers has been cultivating the inherent strengths of young people through the power of long-term mentoring relationships. Our evidence-based best practices and principles have become a model of exemplary programming in the field of youth development.
Our youth mentoring program utilizes outdoor, experiential, and travel-based education to strengthen resiliency, raise aspirations, and increase connections between young people and their communities.
WHY IS TREKKERS IMPORTANT?
Since 1994, Trekkers has been providing long-term, mentoring relationships to hundreds of students from Midcoast Maine. Our students consistently report statistically significant positive change in indicators of resilience, reflection, empathy, trust, and optimism.
Research shows that young people in these kinds of programs are 55 percent more likely to enroll in college, 78 percent more likely to volunteer regularly, and 130 percent more likely to hold leadership positions.
