Celebrating Grouptrail’s 20th Anniversary!

Each journey begins with the first step. I’m reflecting on the trail we’ve been on together as we celebrate Grouptrail’s 20th anniversary this year. The dream to empower teams making a difference has taken us so many places and created a community we’re so grateful for over the years. You all truly epitomize our “Powered by human energy®” tagline collaborating with us and everyone you impact with your work. Being in a reflective mood, I can’t help but to be inspired thinking about your spirit of cooperation, mission based mindset, and belief in our work as a team to help you achieve your goals.

What began in 2004 as a dream started with a little money my grandmother left me when she passed away, we’ve organically grown the company and helping make an amazing impact. Grouptrail is a testament to her legacy. From our very first customer Nike (thank you Sarah Severn and Lee Weinstein!) to all the global brands we’ve worked with (including most of the top reality tv shows!), our incredible team has created a platform that brings people together to fuel connections to opportunities and resources to achieve their goals.

Today, Grouptrail is focused on supporting over 100 nonprofits and government agencies, 200 districts, and 1,000 schools share and track millions of opportunities in the communities they serve across the country, from college access and success support, to career connected and work-based learning, after school programs, case management, and more. We’re thankful for the partnership of New York City Public Schools and Portland Public Schools that kicked off our growing community impact. Stay turned for some exciting news this year, from major announcements of our expanding reach, to celebrations befitting our 20th anniversary.

Onward, and upward!
