Having found the Trek Epic program via a Google search, I wasn't sure what to expect or how great of expectations to have for the experience. In reflecting upon my experience, I can now see the unique role Trek Epic filled in my life.
My first trek was the Northumberland Coast of England in August 2015, followed by participating in the Advanced Trek in Portugal and Spain on El Camino de Santiago in April of 2016. For me personally, Trek Epic came at a time of transitioning from fairly-established-independent-working-travel-loving young adult (hence a Google search was enough for me to go!) to now wife and mother (I got married 3 weeks after returning from the Advanced Trek)! The Core Gift process of Trek Epic brought clarity to my life's purpose, an understanding of how to best capitalize on my strengths and weaknesses, and a renewed zest for the magic of life!
Having experienced two treks in roughly an academic year's time, and experiencing these profound benefits, I believe ANY young adult would benefit greatly from the experience of participating in Trek Epic's Gap Year program. The guidance, networking, ideas, insight, and practical tips from the program's leaders are invaluable. The trek experience is fun, memorable, and a wonderfully effective way to help anyone release their mask and dig deeply into who they are and who they want to be! To follow a truly life-changing experience with year-long guidance and counsel for your life's direction is, again, invaluable for any young adult!!
I cannot stress enough my recommendation of this program! I am forever grateful for the opportunity I had to participate in Trek Epic, and now enjoy watching the far-reaching impact the program has on the lives of others.
