What is the Trek for Teens Foundation?
The Trek for Teens Foundation is a charitable project created to raise awareness of youth homelessness in Toronto. Initiated in 2007 with leadership and guidance from the Rotary Club of Etobicoke, the Trek for Teens Foundation has been a repeated success, raising over $15,000 for Covenant House Toronto, Horizons for Youth, and Youth Without Shelter through the efforts of volunteers and participants.
The foundation is run by youth from across Ontario, with facilitators in high schools and universities across southern Ontario.
Throughout the year, the foundation organizes various events primarily in the city of Toronto, such as the Trek for Teens Race Day. The Race takes place every Spring, and teams of youth ages 13 – 19 solve problems and find hidden clues, working together to complete the course (much like the “Amazing Race”). Other events include the Concerts, the Fashion Show, Dance Competition and much more. Make sure you check out our Events calendar to see what’s on the horizon!
We encourage all youth to become involved in the foundation. It’s a fun way to fulfill your community service obligations for school, or just to get involved in your community. All funds generated by the Trek for Teens Foundation go to homelessness initiatives and charities working to help kids get off the street and find stability in their lives.
