The Trails Youth Sponsorship Programme was developed to help cover the cost of sending our youth each year to Trails. It costs $8,400 per year for each youth, which is a small investment for creating the leaders of tomorrow. This amount covers food, accommodation, activities, guest speakers, canoeing trips, a one-day workshop to Horse Spirit Connection, yoga, certification in first aid, clothing, transportation, field trips, and staffing.
Dr. Wayne Hammond, preeminent Canadian psychologist and founder of Resiliency Canada, states: “Positive and progressive change in youth attitudes and behaviors cannot take place without long term mentorship.” - Something Trails has perfected
Through your investment, we are building healthy and vibrant communities. Trails youth are given the tools and conditions for achievement through skill and knowledge building, two key skills that are crucial to building healthy and vibrant communities.
A donation is an opportunity to see the excitement in a child’s eyes when they paddle a canoe for the first time, share in the camaraderie of singing around a campfire, and take part in outdoor activities they would otherwise never get to enjoy in an urban environment. Trails helps youth to connect, communicate and participate.
