The mission of UrbanTrekkers is to be an outdoor, hands-on, up-close learning and mentoring program, where the world is our classroom.
Our Goals are to:
- Instill a love and respect for all creation and better understand our role as the Earth’s stewards.
- Expose UrbanPromise youth to the natural world by way of outdoor adventures.
- Provide a setting in which young people and caring adults can connect to share experiences that will change how we see the world today, and our place in it tomorrow.
- Build self-esteem and improve self-worth in the lives of students and help them acquire the skills they’ll need to be successful.
Trips are planned around five key elements – outdoor adventures, cross-cultural experiences, community service, environmental awareness, and historical perspectives. Leadership training and teaming building activities are incorporated into all events.
