    Environmental Leadership Cohort

    Soul Trak is excited to announce our 2023 Environmental Leadership Cohort. We are currently accepting applications until Dec 16, 2023.

    The Environmental Leadership Cohort (ELC) will be comprised of leaders from the greater DC Metro area, representing a wide variety of environmental interests and a diverse range of personal and professional backgrounds. This cohort will actively serve a 12-month commitment within the program from January to December 2023, focusing on stewardship initiatives, community organizing, and leadership development. Additional programming will include workshops on Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion, professional development, and grassroots activism with the end goal of delivering tangible community and environmental impact.

    The Soul Trak College Ambassador Cohort is an environmental leadership program for college students in the D.C. metro area. Ambassadors will gain experience and knowledge in outdoor leadership, community organizing, and event management and planning, all while engaging and activating their peers in outdoor programming.

    Soul Trak Ambassadors are carefully selected; they are trained and developed over a semester to create tangible ways to connect their peers on campus to the outdoors. Meeting Wednesdays and Saturdays from March 18 through April 22, 2023, ambassadors will engage in stewardship initiatives that bring service to local greenspace, in addition to other adventure opportunities that will push them individually and as a cohort. By the end of the program, ambassadors will be empowered to execute their own initiative in their community to promote access to the outdoors, and participate in an overnight camping trip where they will utilize their environmental and community leadership skills.

    Interested in learning more? Come join us for a virtual information session on Thursday, December 15th from 5-6pm. We will give an overview of the program, walk you through the application process, and answer any questions you may have about the College Ambassador Cohort.

    Below are tips on how to be more comfortable on the mountain.

    • Wear warm pants and a jacket that is insulated, and wind / water resistant. While on the mountain, the weather can fluctuate and become cold and wet in an instant. Weather-resistant clothing will keep your body comfortable and dry regardless of the conditions.
    • Wear synthetic or  wool base layers avoid cotton products, as they are neither waterproof nor breathable. Synthetic material or wool works best. If it is very cold, then adding a mid layer over the base is suggested. A fleece, sweater, and other similar clothing will keep you warm on the mountain.

    • Insulated gloves or mittens are also very important ski items.
    • You should bring a minimum of two pair of ski socks, as you never know if you will need the second pair. Your socks also should be made out of wool or synthetic materials in order to keep your feet dry.
    • Bringing a backpack filled with sunscreen, lip protection, scarves, hats, medical kits, and other small items is also wise.
    • Bring a warm change of clothing to wear after snowsports.

    COVID Protocol - All participants must have proof of vaccine/booster within the last 6 months, all participants who do not fall within these guidelines MUST schedule a COVID PCR test 2-3 days before the program with negative results and rapid testing on-site of the program.

    Soul Trak Leader Service  Week - US Virgin Islands

    March 5, 2023 - March 12, 2023

    Soul Trak will be hosting its annual Soul Trak Leader Adventure Week again this year in the US Virgin Islands. The week will consist of exciting activities and workshops led by both Soul Trak staff and program partners. This is a great opportunity to deepen our bonding experience as a network of outdoor leaders, further our learning around leadership and diversity, and continue to engage in outdoor recreational activities that promote teamwork, skill building, and expand our tolerance for adversity. This program will be made available for the Environmental Leadership Cohort, College Ambassador Cohort, Soul Trak Volunteers and Soul Trak Members.

    We are partnering with the Friends of Virgin Islands National Park and will be part of their volunteer Trail Crew. The Virgin Islands National Park is on the Island of St. John.

    The Volunteer Camp at Cinnamon Bay.

    Food: Participants will be responsible for feeding themselves. There will be transportation to the grocery store on Monday after work. This means we should arrive to the camp on Sunday with enough food to get through Sunday night and Monday's work day. Food prices are quite high on St. John, so it's a good idea to bring some dry foods from the States. You are welcome to hang out in Cruz Bay, but transportation will not be provided.

    Transportation: The National Park has a 14-passenger government van for the Trails Program. This vehicle can ONLY be used for official government use - meaning that recreational trips during non-work time are prohibited. The van will be used exclusively for transportation to and from the work sites and a grocery store trip into Cruz Bay.  It is NOT safe to walk on the road from camp to Cruz Bay (~4 miles).

    Accommodation: The volunteer campground is a three-minute walk from the beautiful white sand beach of Cinnamon Bay with excellent swimming and snorkeling (no lifeguard on duty). Each volunteer will be given a Eureka Copper Canyon 12 tent that is big enough that you can stand up and walk around in. They are situated on raised wooden platforms and equipped with 2 cots (no bedding provided). Participants who are traveling alone will have their own tent while couples/friends can share a tent.

    The campground kitchen is equipped with two Coleman double-burner propane stoves, a propane fill, a refrigerator, a full complement of kitchenware, picnic tables, coolers, drinking water, electric lights, and a cellphone charging station. The open power is to be used only for the charging of small electronic devices.

    There are two cold-water showers and two toilets at camp. All communal areas are to be kept clean by volunteers.

    Please note that there is no cell coverage at camp. Limited cell service is available at the east end of the beach.
