Trails Youth Initiatives

Funded since 2020

Trails' mission is to challenge, equip and empower vulnerable youth from at-risk areas of Toronto to become contributing members of the community. Trails was built on the belief that all youth — especially those facing barriers based on race, income, education and neighbourhood — benefit from a long-term, consistent approach to engagement, one that uses outdoor experiential learning to teach leadership, resiliency, and conflict resolution, as well as physical and mental wellness.

Why We Fund Trails Youth Initiatives

Power to Give’s support helps Trails build the necessary organizational infrastructure to ensure our long-term, sustainable success of making a difference for our youth throughout their lives. That foundational support nurtures social entrepreneurship, allowing Trails to implement solutions to social issues while involving and empowering our leaders of tomorrow to achieve it.
