I have had very positive experiences with this organization. Coming from Germany, where solar is very common because of the financial incentive, I was surprised to find so much enthusiasm for renewable energy because of environment reasons here in the U.S. The leadership at SolTrekker really is at the front of that enthusiasm and passion. While building the bus from a old RV shell, they were very committed to research and installing the most sustainable building materials available, not just to the idea of being green, but to put it into practice. I feel sure that the free education they do at schools without much money is helping to make the students more educated about conservation and efficiency and inspiring them to make actions that will provide solutions to climate change and environment destruction.
SolTrekker is an impressive organization that is driven by big hearts, an ambitious vision, and a genuine passion for connecting people, education, and environment.
I have been totally impressed with the vision and passion of SolTrekker volunteers and staff to run such an inspiring and creative educational program for youth and adults. The need to change our ways in order to save the environment is clear, and SolTrekker is making an impact. I have toured the RV and talked many times with Ty Adams whose vision and leadership I appreciate so much.
I interviewed Ty and he was a knowledgable and helpful person. He told me about his organization. He tours and instructs children from low-income and diverse student populations about renewable energy and environmental sustainability in our public school system. This is a socially responsible non profit and they deserve our support.
I was fortunate enough to be part of a small tour, led by Ty Adams, of the SolTrekker RV. We were guided through all of the intricate details of how they refurbished the RV to be powered by solar energy, including insulating with old blue jeans! They are clearly passionate about what they do, and serious about imparting what they've learned and making it accessible to all, including kids. I have not gotten a look yet at their waffle cart, but I am pleased at this new venture they have created in order to bring in more funding. They are so creative!
SolTrekker is an admirable non-profit in that it founds its mission in awareness and education. With the aim of making renewable sources of energy more accessible to individuals of all social classes, the organization strives to educate those in need. Ty has gone to great lengths to promote sustainability by incorporating visual examples (such as the sustainable bus and its individual functions) for students and adults. Also, the goals remain particularly precise, in that the local community remains the highest priority.
I joined SolTrekker to assist in helping others become more aware of renewable energy and its potential to help solve the challenges of climate change and resource wars. I think the biggest strength of the organization is that it is unique and generates a lot of attention and inspiration. I'd say the biggest challenge of the organization is fundraising.
Help students gain experience working in food service industry and in customer service. Great non-profit, help the environment and students.
This organization does amazing things. While I've been involved in many background things, the partnership with PPS has been invaluable. SolTrekker inspires people to be more sustainable!! This organization has provided invaluable lessons and education to my students and they are really moving forward with their goals due to their work and interactions with SolTrekker. We never would be where we are without it.
SolTrekker, with its beautiful fully-renewable eco-RV, combines the best of both worlds for students and teachers: It provides the excitement of a field trip, with presentations that students love. And it brings that excitement to the school door, dramatically simplifying logistics (and reducing costs!) for teachers and schools. The simplicity and elegance of seeing renewable technology in such an accessible way touches students deeply, and gives them a learning experience that they will carry forward.
