Trekkers, Inc: Outdoor-based Mentoring for Students with Hannah Walsh
and Brandon Caron
is a non-profit, outdoor-based mentoring program that connects young people with caring adults through expeditionary learning, community service and adventure-based education.
Our goal is to be a part of students’ lives from grade to grade and year to year. Trekkers follows students as they “graduate” from one program into the next along a six year journey that starts when they are in 7th grade and continues until they graduate.
In so doing, Trekkers
- Collaborates with teachers and parents to foster personal and educational development in the lives of students.
- Recruits, trains, and encourages local adults to take a leadership role in meeting the critical needs of students.
- Provides students with alternative learning communities which cultivate responsibility to self, others, and the planet.
Hannah Walsh, Program Director – Hannah is Trekkers’ Program Director as of January 10, 2019. She had been serving as a Program Manager since September of 2014. When she’s not caught in the moment on a Trekkers trip, you can find Hannah exploring new places like the Talkeetna mountains of Alaska, gardening at her house in Thomaston, doing lots of cooking experiments, running half-marathons, and going on hikes with her husband and puppy.
Brandon Caron, Program Manager – Brandon is a Trekkers Program Manager. In his free time, you’ll likely find him on a mountain, in the woods, on the water or in a hammock.
