Meredith Lynt, Director
Meredith has been committed to the field of youth development for over a decade and has been inspired by and committed to Trekkers nearly as long. Meredith has facilitated Trekkers’ growth and development while ensuring that the organization remain genuine to its core values. As the Director of Trekkers Training Institute, Meredith hopes to inspire other youth development professionals to create state-wide systemic change in raising aspirations in young people. Prior to her role as the Director of the Institute, Meredith worked directly with Trekkers’ youth as a Program Manager, then transitioned to developing new staff and overseeing the general direction of programs as our Program Director. Meredith has a B.S. in Sociology and holds a Certificate in Non-Profit Management from Maine Association of Non Profits. Beyond Trekkers, Meredith has worked for Big Brothers Big Sisters of Massachusetts Bay, Youthlinks, and Forrester Research. Meredith fell for her husband (and Trekkers volunteer!), Adam, in a bat cave on a Trekkers trip to the Pacific Northwest. They now live together in Rockland, Maine.
