What is a Student Leader?
The Trek for Teens Foundation thrives off a student leader model. Student leaders take the initiative to act as representatives for their schools, youth groups, boards or other youth organizations to raise awareness about Trek for Teens and Youth Homelessness.
Responsibilities of a Student Leader Include:
- To represent the Trek for Teens Foundation
- To raise awareness about and funds for the Trek for Teens Foundation and youth homelessness
- To actively promote and facilitate involvement in Trek for Teens within your school or group
- To ensure Trek for Teens continues in your school or group in upcoming years
How does Trek for Teens Support Student Leaders
The Trek for Teens Foundation supports student leaders by offering them a large variety of services. We provide each student leader with a package containing: information booklets, posters, template announcements, etc. In addition, Trek for Teens will also come and give school presentations upon request.
If I am a Student Leader, does that mean I cannot participate in the events?
No, as a student leader, the majority of your work takes place before the events, therefore you can choose to volunteer at the events or participate in the event yourself.
