Trail To Every Classroom

The Trail to Every Classroom (TTEC) program is a professional development program for K-12 teachers that provides educators with the tools and training for place-based education and service-learning on the Appalachian Trail.

Launched in 2006, in partnership with the National Park Service, the program offers educators resources needed to engage their students in their local community, while growing academically and professionally. PATC and the Southern Shenandoah Valley Chapter are proud to work with the students, faculty, and parents involved with the TTEC program.
