Giving Back in the Community
As new owners of an established business, the staff met and discussed how we can make a positive impact on this community. It was decided to take $5 from every oil change each month and award it to a local charity.
We invite organizations to contact Jan to inquire on how to become a recipient of this program.
Please email email@example.com for more information.
The July Recipient is Trekkers
Trekkers is a non-profit, outdoor-based mentoring program that connects young people with caring adults through expeditionary learning, community service and adventure-based education. With community adult volunteers working throughout the year, Trekkers provides educational, experiential, and cross-cultural opportunities for young people, with an emphasis on relationship building and an appreciation of the earth as “educator.”
Our goal is to be a part of students' lives from grade to grade and year to year 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.
- 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.
We currently serve more than 200 students from six communities in Midcoast Maine (Cushing, Owls Head, Rockland, South Thomaston, St. George and Thomaston). Each year we provide a grade-specific educational expedition to the students at the end of their program. Throughout the school year, they use a consensus-decision making process to collectively decide how they will incorporate 5 educational components in their expedition. They also use this process to determine the requirements for participating in the program, including minimizing the number of school suspensions, passing grade requirements and the agreement to not use drugs, alcohol or tobacco while in the program. They share in tasks and fundraising activities, and complete their expedition alongside their peers, mentors and leaders. For more about our program and our mission, please see our web site, www.trekkers.org
