In partnership with the Emmanuel Lerner Foundation, the Aspirations Incubator project is a 6-year pilot program. This effort focuses on reaching middle school students at a critical developmental stage and lasting through high school graduation.

Each organization is trained in the Trekkers Youth Programming Principles. We provide regular consultation to the Aspirations Incubator Program Managers. TTI gives organizations a cross-cohort connection, where the group learns together and from each other as a team of rural Maine youth practitioners with a shared goal.
