What kind of kids does Trinity work with?
Trinity Mentoring works with children and young adults in about an hour circle around Eau Claire, Wisconsin. The kids we work with range in age from 5-19 years old and come for all walks of life along with different diagnosis such as PTSD, fetal alcohol syndrome, autism, ADD/ADHD, minor behavioral issues, academic issues, and a vast array of environmental hurdles that they have to deal with on a daily basis. The kids are wonderful to hang out with. They just need a little extra direction from a healthy, positive adult who they can look to and learn from.
