Fresh Tracks was inspired in 2015 by a call from President Obama for bold new programs that use the outdoors to broaden the horizons of young Americans facing persistent opportunity gaps. The call to action was simple.
Bring young leaders together. Give them a platform to share their stories. Invite them to find common ground in the outdoors. Let them tell you what it means to be an active citizen. And show them they have the tools to change the world.
This is how we push back against the forces dividing us. This is how we overcome opportunity gaps. This is how we ignite the 21st-century movement of leaders, advocates, and educators who will shape the future through collective impact and smart, compassionate policy.
