This summer and fall, Rockland-based youth mentoring organization Trekkers has found safe ways to get students onto the water. Program Manager, Taylor “TJ” Jackson has helped run day trips so students can see their hometowns from a new point of view. With a bachelor’s degree in Marine Science and experience working on educational tall ships, she says, “Exploring the water through boats is my favorite thing in the whole world. We really took advantage of all the challenges and joys that water has to share with us – so many students conquered a fear or found a new love!”
