New Mission and Vision

Updated: Feb 28



Since our beginning in 2007, we have stood to raise awareness and support for homeless youth in Canada. We’re excited for this next chapter as we move forward with our new mission, vision, and objectives.


Despite the many challenges of the COVID-19 pandemic, Trek for Teens has continued to grow and thrive, with young people across the country working to support at-risk and homeless youth in our local communities. Over the last year, we have been diligently reflecting on our vision, mission, and objectives as a charity and on ways we can increase our impact. Thanks to the tireless efforts of our many dedicated volunteers, I am excited that we are now ready to announce these updated elements of our strategic plan that provide the foundations for our work to mitigate youth homelessness across Canada.
