Kevin Sedlak, BS
Young Adult Field Support
Kevin was born and raised in northern New Jersey. It was through hiking and fishing with his Grandfather in Vermont’s Northeast kingdom that Kevin originally found his love for nature. Working at summer camps in New Jersey and upstate New York, Kevin discovered his love for leading youth in the wilderness. Upon graduation from the University of Dayton with a Bachelor’s of Science in Education, Kevin moved to the Adirondack region of New York to start a career in outdoor education.
After guiding canoe trips in the Adirondacks, Kevin worked for Princeton University at an outdoor education center for at-risk youth. Continuing his professional development, Kevin later moved to Vermont to guide for True North. After logging over 200 field days as a guide at True North, Kevin moved to southeast Alaska to work for a canoeing-based wilderness program. Working with Native Alaskans and adjudicated youth from Alaska was an eye-opening experience for Kevin, as he continued to develop therapeutic and outdoor skills. In addition to his WFR, CPR, and CPI certifications, Kevin holds multiple canoe certifications from Paddle Canada.
Kevin returned to True North in his current role as a dedicated support for True North’s Young Adult clients. Kevin facilitates Young Adult expeditions and service projects, supports their academic and transition work, and helps them to manage a wide variety of additional tasks and experiences. In his free time, you can find Kevin swimming in the Mad River, skiing, or canoeing in the Adirondacks.
