I can look back at all that the Lord has done in the life of my son. His four years of servant leadership with Trail Life USA have helped make him into the strong leader that he is today. He has learned that it is through service that one leads. He begins his college career with an incredible set of life skills because of his time in Trail Life.

“The values frontier is amazing - my boys are working through Apologetics I and II , Creeds, and Bible Basics. These were all really well done" - Shane - Homeschool Dad

Molding Boys

When empowered and provided with structure and challenge; the energy and enthusiam of boys is unlocked, relationships grow, and boys come to life! As they plan, work, serve, and experience adventure together, boys grow in character and leadership -- developing relationships with friends and mentors that will last a lifetime.

"Each of my kids had to pick one badge they want to do as an elective and then we divide it up. Some have taken as short as 3 weeks -- our longest was 9 months. They help us to explore potential career options, learn skills, and put learned items Into practice." - Trephina - Homeschool Mom
