Meet the 2021-22 Trail Apprentice Cohort

The Partnership for the National Trails System is excited to announce the 2021-22 Trail Apprentice Program cohort—it’s largest to date.

The Trail Apprentice Program provides learning, peer exchange, and networking opportunities for students and young professionals between the ages of 18 and 28 who are considering careers in trails and public lands.

After switching to a virtual program, for the second consecutive year we’ve have more applicants than ever before. We’re excited to see such enthusiasm for National Trails and we’re pleased to introduce the 2021-22 PNTS Trail Apprentices.
