Welcome to TrailsforYouth.Org!

“I love riding a bike, it’s so much fun and I saw a turtle!”

We hear this all the time and the kids don’t mind getting dirty or exhausted as they learn to overcome obstacles on the trails.

Whether kids are on the trail to school, riding a bike on a dirt trail or on the trail of life, we provide opportunities for them to be healthier and more confident in their abilities.

TrailsforYouth.Org mission is to mentor youth to overcome obstacles on the trail and in life!

Without our programs, there are some kids that simply would not get outside to enjoy fresh air, a bike ride and the opportunity to be active outdoors. As one recent camper said,

“this is way more fun than playing video games!”

Our mission is to mentor at-risk youth and provide opportunities for all children to experience the joys and benefits of being active outdoors. Our programs are holistic in fulfilling this mission.

Our programs focus on getting all youth outdoors and active. We have levels of involvement for everyone from a variety of backgrounds — find one that works for you!
