“The crew leaders were very kind and flexible with all of us crew members, and we even created an amazing bond with the job coach. My crew members and I learned to work together and form trusting friendships. This positive environment makes me believe that Tree Trust is a great place to work and makes me want to come back.”

– Crew Member

“Tree Trust absolutely provides an initial, positive employment
experience to youth that might not otherwise get it.
For those youth at risk, it is a much better start than
simply being released into a competitive environment.”

– Parent/Guardian

“I definitely have changed. I have become more confident and more decisive. I’ve also learned how to be a better leader and to work with the youth.”
