True North Treks is a national 501(c)3 nonprofit organization that harnesses the big medicine of nature, peer support, and mindful awareness practices to help teens & young adults diagnosed with cancer chart a new course and get connected again after the very  disconnecting experience of cancer.

They offer a variety of programs and services, from free wilderness-based backpacking and canoeing treks for teens & young adults, caregivers, and oncology care providers; research support to other young adult cancer organizations; education, advocacy, and prevention initiatives to raise awareness of this undeserved population; and health promotion support and skills training to teens & young adults receiving treatment, and those who have completed it.
