Of his time at Trekkers, Carpenter, who started there in 1998, said, “I wasn’t sure where we were headed, but felt the Trekkers program could have a significant, positive impact on the youth in our community. Seventeen years later, I feel an enormous sense of accomplishment having had the opportunity to work with so many remarkable young people, families and community partners.”
