CHERRYFIELD, ME — Maine Seacoast Mission announces the addition of Dakin Hewlett as the Journey Program Manager. The Mission EdGE Journey Program is an Emanuel and Pauline A.

Prior to joining the Mission, Ms. Hewlett served as Delaware Nature Society’s Watershed Education Coordinator where she developed and implemented two youth programs – the Wilmington Youth Environmental Corps and Trail Ambassador programs. The programs provided mentoring, career skill development, outdoor activities, and community engagement projects to support youth aspirations.
Mission Downeast Director Melvin D. Adams III, Ed.D. said, “I’m excited to welcome Dakin to the Downeast Campus team. Her passion for engaging youth voices in the work, supporting youth, and collaborating with communities to increase youth aspirations and success is clear. She is dedicated to learn about history, culture, and place in which she works,” said Mel Adams.
Dakin Hewlett said, “I’m excited to join the dedicated team at Maine Seacoast Mission and to be a part of the organization’s commitment to serving Downeast communities. I’m thankful for the opportunity to engage students and their families through Journey, and look forward to continuing the long-term investment in building relationships, and activating voices of youth leaders in the community,” said Hewlett.
Since 1905, the Maine Seacoast Mission has supported communities in some of Maine’s most isolated villages and islands. The Mission connects people to each other, to education, to food, and to wellness.
