Founder and Director, Teens To Trails
Seven years ago, Carol Leone founded an organization called Teens To Trails based on a simple, replicable concept: If every high school in Maine offered an Outing Club program, every student would have access to safe, healthy and fun outdoor experiences just at the time in their life when they need positive choices the most. Since that time, Carol has led the Teens To Trails movement to increase the opportunities for Maine teens to experience the out-of-doors through a variety of programs that promote and support high school Outing Clubs. Teens To Trails began with one individual, grew in size and scope through the efforts of a dedicated group of volunteers, and has transitioned to a growing membership organization supporting Outing Clubs across the State. All Carol’s efforts are dedicated to the memory of her younger daughter, Sara, who’s strong connection to the out-of-doors was instrumental in developing the confident and caring, passionate and compassionate young lady she had become in her short 15 years.
