News and events

We provide training in circus skills free of charge to Trenton area youth age 6+.  Squad Members aged 12+ serve their community through teaching and performing, at the Wire Works and across our community.  Circus workshops take place at the Roebling Wire Works in Trenton and at community events. We have some offerings for adults too.

Trenton Circus Squad empowers low-income and at-risk teens and younger children to make a difference, in their own lives and those of others. We use circus arts as a vehicle to bring diverse youth together to cooperate, challenge themselves and serve their community through performing and teaching.

We rely on the support of donors to keep our programs free of charge to youth.  Many families whose children participate, also become donors.
