Submit your application by August 17 to be considered for the Next Generation Advisory Council (NextGen)! ATC created NextGen to encourage young leaders (ages 18-30) to become more involved in the management and stewardship of the #AppalachianTrail. The Council explores effective methods for engaging and inviting a wider network to participate in Trail advocacy and protection, and advises the ATC on inclusive practices, policies, and programs. Applicants from all geographic areas welcome, but applicants in states along the Appalachian Trail north of Virginia especially encouraged.
