Trek for Teens continues to grow! In January, the foundation's President, Michael Bazzocchi, attended the Queen's Conference on Philanthropy and spoke to its delegates about the organization; the presentation resonated with students in the area and the fourth Trek for Teens Chapter was shortly formed. The Trek for Teens Queen's University Chapter plans to host events which promote the Trek for Teens mission while supporting the local Kingston Youth Homeless Shelter. The club consists of students from a variety of years and faculties, each bringing an exciting and different perspective on how best to expand the foundation and promote its mandate in the Kingston community.
Trek for Teens at Queen's University is currently seeking ratification and plans to host multiple events over the following months, including fundraising events in the local community and its very own "Amazing Race"!

The expansion doesn't stop there, though. The recently-formed Trek for Teens Montreal club focuses on raising funds and awareness for homeless youth in the Montreal community. The club's actions are performed by members of each of the local universities - McGill, Concordia, Université du Québec à Montréal, and Université de Montréal. Each event is intentionally designed to be conducive to student-organization interaction.
The Montreal Club Executive consists of the following members thus far:
President: Natasha Chatur
Executive: Sarah Wolf
Executive: Charlotte Paul
The club plans to draw on the unique skills and talents of its students and the local community, particularly from those in the Fashion, Music, Marketing, and Humanity programs of their schools, to support the Trek for Teens Foundation in its endeavours. The club is assisting with the Trek for Teens Fashion Show in May and will be hosting its own fashion show, an open mic night, and more events in the fall.
