About Us

Trenton Circus Squad taps into the wonder and tradition of circus to build on the extraordinary potential for youth to transform themselves and people around them when they have confidence in their own value. Through our free after-school and summer programs and workshops, the Squad and participants practice physical skills that improve health and well-being, learn life skills that help them achieve, and build trust with others.
