Trekkers is a non-profit, outdoor-based youth mentoring organization that serves seventh through twelfth-grade students from six communities in midcoast Maine. Trekkers combines expeditionary learning, community service, and adventure-based education utilizing a long-term mentoring approach to help students build life skills. Through grade-specific programs that build on the skills, learning and personal growth gained the previous year, Trekkers incorporates five educationalcomponents: adventure-based learning, cultural awareness, community service, environmental stewardship and wilderness exploration. Trekkers seeks to expose students to the diversity of people, cultures, natural resources and opportunities that exist outside the focus of their everyday life and to prepare them for life beyond high school. The Trekkers program helps students navigate adolescence through a preventative approach that provides a safety net of support and surrounds students with invested and caring adults.Trekkers serves 240 students a year from our rural, six-town service ares. The Trekkers AmeriCorps Mentoring Program will allow us to double the number of hours each student spends with a trainedmentoring and serve an additional 20 students in AmeriCorps member run interventions.

Don't Be Fooled

The fraudster will send a check to the victim who has accepted a job. The check can be for multiple reasons such as signing bonus, supplies, etc. The victim will be instructed to deposit the check and use the money for any of these reasons and then instructed to send the remaining funds to the fraudster. The check will bounce and the victim is left responsible.
