Trails Youth Initiatives is a charity and private school that provides a long-term programme for vulnerable youth. We focus on fostering community, emotional intelligence, and self-knowledge through outdoor experiential education. We augment students’ traditional schooling with intentional community-building, conscious challenge, and lifelong support in order to position them for success.
Participants commit to our four-year programme with a group of 20 of their peers: two weeks each summer, and one weekend per month during the school year. At this home away from home camp setting, participants build resiliency through developing a connection to their peers, a connection to place, and a connection to themselves. Trails focuses on growing and strengthening skills such as Non-violent Communication, conflict resolution, leadership, critical thinking, and reflection. With our focus on transference, participants build a positive engagement with Trails, the outdoors, and their authentic selves. Typical daily activities may include hiking, canoeing, swimming, camping, skiing, snowshoeing and yoga.
We are currently looking for facilitators/teachers to join our summer staff team working 10-14 day sessions, with opportunities to extend contracts to continue working with groups on weekends throughout the year (October 2020 through to May 2021).
