We create transformative, real-world opportunities for youth and communities by teaching critical life skills, promoting personal growth and connecting youth to mentors, their communities, and meaningful employment.
More About Us
Based in Phoenixville, PA, Trellis for Tomorrow is a 17-year-old nonprofit organization that fosters resilience and compassion in individuals, inspiring them to build sustainable communities. We use parks, preserves and gardens as living classrooms where we deliver experiential programs in organic gardening, environmental stewardship, and food security that provide both practical and behavioral life skills for youth and adults.
Over the last few years, Trellis has been designated as a “High Impact Organization” by a nationally recognized third-party evaluator based on our youth outcomes. In addition, we have provided tens of thousands of pounds of healthy, organic produce to communities in need, received public recognition, and had extremely positive responses from the individuals we serve. Our summer programs have demonstrated increases in resilience, social connection and academic advances by 90% of our youth participants.
