Next Generation Coalition

Join the Next Generation Coalition, a group of young people connecting on and because of the North Country National Scenic Trail. We’re continuing this initiative in Summer 2019 to connect trail users and supporters from Generations Y and Z to a network of other trail lovers with the goal of getting more young people involved in outreach, volunteerism and advocacy.

What are we asking from you?

  • Think BIG about what our community needs – bring your creativity and ideas!
  • Participate in one call/month (Summer 2019), led by our Next Generation Outreach Intern, Emily Rodriguez.
  • Share the NCT with others through social media or plan your own events.
  • Contribute to the trail by connecting with one of our Local Chapters for work days and bringing others along with you.

What will you get out of it? You will:

  • Network with peers and professionals from across the nation.
  • Gain experience in outdoor recreation, engaging with volunteers, public outreach and advocacy for public lands.
  • Get out on the North Country Trail and bring others along with you.
  • Have fun and make friends along the way.

Join us on this new adventure!
