UrbanTrekkers seeks to complement UrbanPromise’s highly successful academic programming with expeditionary learning opportunities. We believe education requires motivation—an awakening of the childlike curiosity that is part of human nature. Trekker trips are designed to motivate students to learn from their outdoor experiences and carry that motivation into their studies. Activities are designed to help develop students’ skills in teamwork, leadership, and decision-making.
Our dedicated group of staff, interns, and volunteers believe the experiences we have during adolescence directly influence the direction and path we follow the rest of our lives. An important part of those experiences are the relationships formed with positive and caring adult role models—those committed to teaching our youth that each individual is wonderfully created in the image of God and poised for success in the future.
