Fresh Tracks At a Glance

All Fresh Tracks training expeditions bring together participants from urban, rural, and tribal, and indigenous communities from around the country for three days of skill development in civic engagement and cultural understanding enriched by outdoor excursions close to our host cities. Fresh Tracks empowers young leaders from different communities to build personal narratives, develop personal leadership plans, and practice the skills to build bridges across cultures. Guest speakers representing national youth development organizations, universities, and businesses will share their stories and offer guidance on how to turn a vision for change into a reality.


All accepted applicants receive travel scholarships. Meals and lodging are including in the training at no cost.


The West Coast training expedition will begin Friday, July 13th at 1:00 pm and conclude at 6:00 pm on Sunday, July 15th. For more details on the training, including information about activities and workshops, check out the agenda here (details subject to change).
