Why Participate:

  1. Meaningful Impact: By participating in our Trail Ambassador Program, your volunteer group will actively contribute to the long-term preservation and sustainability of Oregon’s stunning trail system, leaving a lasting impact on the environment.
  2. Connect with Nature: Looking to get out of the office as a team? This program provides a perfect escape from the corporate setting, offering your employees a chance to immerse themselves in the beauty of nature, re-energize, and find inspiration.
  3. Build Stronger Teams: Working together in a non-traditional setting helps your team form genuine connections, enhancing collaboration and teamwork back in the workplace.
  4. Employee Well-being: Outdoor activities have proven benefits for mental and physical health. Your employees will return with rejuvenated spirits and increased productivity.
  5. Promote Environmental Values: Engaging in eco-friendly initiatives aligns your company with sustainable values, enhancing your brand’s reputation among customers, partners, and investors.

How It Works:

  1. Orientation: When your group begins your day of service with TKO, our staff will provide you with a welcome and orientation for the day. We will equip you with all you’ll need to know to help support hikers in feeling safe and welcome on their outdoor adventures for the day.
  2. Education and outreach: Your volunteer team will work hand in hand with our seasoned Lead Ambassadors and staff to do hiker education and outreach activities. This may include talking to folks about leave no trace, hike options in the area and hiking the trails together as well!
  3. Environmental Awareness: Throughout the experience, our dedicated experts will educate your team about the importance of preserving biodiversity, reducing human impact on the environment through education, and promoting responsible hiking practices.
  4. Team-Building Opportunities: Engaging in collaborative trail projects fosters team-building and camaraderie among your employees. They will learn to rely on each other, communicate effectively, and tackle challenges as a united front.
  5. Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR): For corporate teams, this program aligns perfectly with your organization’s ethos of giving back to the community and supporting eco-friendly initiatives by providing a real-world way of demonstrating your commitment to CSR initiatives.
