Trails Youth Initiatives is excited to launch it’s second annual Get Outside Challenge! This virtual fundraising event encourages you and your team to spend 8 hours outdoors while spreading awareness and raising funds for the Trails Youth Initiatives. By supporting the challenge, you will directly impact the lives of 120+ 12–17-year-olds to become contributing members of their communities.
To participate in the Get Outside Challenge, register yourself or a team of up to six participants at no cost at www.trails.ca/GO.

About Trails Youth Initiatives
Trails Youth Initiatives has a mission to challenge and equip vulnerable youth from at-risk areas of Toronto to become contributing members of the community. The “Four Seasons, Four Years, For Life” program represents experiential education at its best. In our long-term, consistent and preventative program, youth are building confidence and enhancing their well-being by facing and overcoming challenges. Through outdoor skills development, high school credits, bursaries, mentorship and job opportunities, Trails is helping to break the cycle of poverty and systemic racism. 100% of Trails participants graduate from high school and 72% of alumni enter post-secondary school, with tuition costs covered by Trails. Trails relies on the generosity of non-government donations from companies, foundations and individuals to provide life-changing experiences for its participants. www.trails.ca.
