In November 2017, EdGE launched Journey, a new six-year youth mentoring program. Journey is made possible by the Lerner Foundation and its mentoring-based initiative, Aspirations Incubator, designed to raise/sustain aspirations of rural Maine middle and high school students.
The Journey team is currently recruiting 7th grade students to join the program. Apply now! Applications are now being accepted for the Journey Program. Submit your application online: Journey 7th Grade Student Application
Journey is based on Ten Youth Programming Principles developed by Trekkers, Inc. Each year, seventh grade students are selected from Narraguagus Jr./Sr. High School and Cherryfield Elementary School to form a fifteen student “cohort.” The cohort participants are mentored until they graduate high school.
Journey gives students wraparound support in-and-out of school, provides leadership development, community involvement, outdoor recreation, and college and career readiness.
