Teaching the foundations of adventure!
New Treks focuses on Education, Recreation, and Job creation. We work in Title 1 schools, low income and diverse, in which we provide accredited outdoor education classes for grades K-12. These classes range from environmental science to outdoor recreation. After building the knowledge, comfort, and skills in the classroom we put them into practical use. Facilitating full day adventures that promote teamwork, self-growth, and group management our youth learn how to become leaders. Then we create a paid internship program where our high school students work with us over the summer providing programming to behavioral health and low-income housing youth.
ADVENTURE WITHIN REACH
How do we define adventure?
Adventure is simply going outside your comfort zone and exploring something new. It can be a walk in your local park to summiting the highest peak. We teach the life skills to prepare you for any adventure!
To create a new generation of outdoor stewards by normalizing outdoor spaces and increasing access in underserved and marginalized communities.
Create a healthy and more diverse outdoor community in which outdoor education, recreation, and career pathways are within reach, creating a lasting equitable future.
Diversity & Inclusion
How we do it!
By meeting our youth where they are at, both physically and emotionally, we can give them the knowledge and training in a familiar setting.
Taking our youth on full day trips helps promote resiliency and solidifies the in-class lessons into practical application.
Through paid internship opportunities our youth are able to gain entry level job experience and certifications to pursue many outdoor careers.
"We should come home from adventures, and perils, and discoveries every day with new experience and character."
