Outreach Programs

While ATA’s primary focus is on protecting and maintaining the trail, and we have a number of outreach programs to engage community members in the Arizona Trail experience. This includes the ATA’s Youth, VETS and Gateway Community Programs.

VETS (Veteran Engagement & Trail Stewardship) has a mission to connect those who have served our country with fellow service members and the AZT by creating meaningful opportunities on and off the trail for military veterans.
