All Kinds of News for September 16, 2020
This month, Trails Momentum celebrated three years of helping students overcome the challenges of young adulthood. Since their opening in 2017, Momentum has helped over 150 young adults change their lives through their hybrid wilderness program - Trails Momentum combines adventure therapy, comprehensive clinical programming, and academic opportunities for young adults. The program often provides a launching point for students who have struggled to succeed in life after high school. Upon completing Momentum, their graduates have successfully transitioned to study at 47 colleges and universities across the country.
“Three years ago, we gathered a handful of seasoned veterans to create an innovative, dynamic approach to working with young adults,” Executive Director and Founder Graham Shannonhouse said. “Our goal is to prepare our students for a new world with different challenges and many opportunities for success. We opened our doors and created a unique, young adult, hybrid wilderness program.”
Momentum helps young adults ages 18-25 learn the skills needed to thrive, through a combination of traditional therapeutic approaches and experiential learning. By building connections, learning to communicate effectively, and overcoming obstacles, students are able to return to their everyday lives with the tools they needed to succeed.
“At the end of the day, it’s the people that make the program so successful. Through each student’s hard work and dedication, they build independence and success at our program,” Graham said. “That success is guided by our fantastic staff who, day in and day out, forever impact the lives of young adults. This would not be possible without the selfless dedication of our team. I could not be more proud of the work the Trails Momentum team does every single day.”
