Being at Trails has created opportunities for me to expand my communication skills, my problem solving skills, and my leadership skills during the four years at Trails. Before I came to Trails, I was down a path of trouble – I was irresponsible, unapologetic, and deviant. I listened to respond, not to understand. That all changed when I started to attend Trails. I was challenged in many ways such as camping, high ropes, swimming, problematic situations and using “I-statements”. I had positive people supporting me to do better and with these people and staff, I have grown into the person I’ve become today.
