Welcome Jane! T3's Outreach Coordinator for Outing Clubs

Teens To Trails's picture

Jane Koopman is our new T3 Outreach Coordinator for Outing Clubs.  Jane is an avid outdoorswoman & has years of experience in leading outdoor programs -- shaping the ethics, ideals and interests she now values.  Jane shares, "I have had the pleasure of witnessing young wilderness trip participants grow and form lifelong friendships, observed the seeds of a wilderness ethic take root and watched kids push themselves past limits they never thought they could surpass."

She has been a Wilderness Trip Leader and Camp Counselor at Chewonki, worked with the Kennebec Estuary Land Trust, trained with the National Outdoor Leadership School and taught various outdoor skills.  As a former Bowdoin Outing Club leader, she appreciates the potential behind the new T3 "College Mentors for Maine Teens" initiative that she will lead in the coming year.  Her interests include environmental conservation, backpacking, working with animals, sailing, snowboarding, and whitewater kayaking.  
 

If you are an Outing Club Advisor, a member of a high school Club, or have thoughts of starting an Outing Club program at your school, please get in touch with Jane.  She wants to hear from you!
